Bachelor of Science in Education- Early Childhood/Late Childhood (K-6, Elementary Education)

Majors in Early Childhood/Late Childhood (K-6) devote the greater portion of their work during the first two years to a broad general education. The work of the last two years consists of continued academic coursework at the upper level and professional courses and experiences. The candidate’s profes­sional education program culminates in the senior year with the professional semester, a 17-hour block which includes off-campus student teaching.

Candidates working toward licensure in Early Child­hood/Late Childhood (K-6) who wish to add a second teaching field in middle level education, English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL), or special education will find those listings under the heading Second Teaching Fields. For additional informa­tion contact the appropriate department.
