The Elementary Education Program is designed for a candidate with a liberal or professional undergraduate degree who seeks licensure as an elementary teacher. 


Our graduate candidates embark on a rigorous course of study while apprenticing in urban and suburban classrooms.

The pedagogical courses and classroom experiences are designed to induct preservice teachers into the current research and best practices of each subject area in the elementary curriculum.

Prior to student teaching, students complete a minimum of 120 hours in the field, planning and teaching lessons across the curriculum as well as completing other field-related assignments. In the spring, candidates student-teach for the entire semester, assuming major responsibility for designing and implementing effective instruction and assessing children’s learning.
