Elementary Education

Elementary education prepares the future teacher to teach reading, language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, music, art, health and physical education. Thus, the focus is on general and professional courses in education rather than a concentration in a particular subject area.

Elementary education is the study of the teaching-learning process in relation to the academic, affective, social, cultural, moral and psychomotor development of children ranging in ages from approximately six to thirteen. The School of Education offers a program leading to the B.S. in Education in elementary education.

The elementary education major leads to Indiana’s teaching license for early and middle childhood, typically grades K-5. With additional hours students can add special endorsements which will permit them to teach special education (including emotionally handicapped, mildly mentally handicapped, and learning disabled) or junior high/middle school.
