Program Description:

The Elementary Education program builds on the most current body of knowledge of best practice and practical expertise (theory and practice) relevant in teaching grades K-6. The program is designed for candidates who have a baccalaureate K-6 teaching license or who will receive a K-6 teaching license before the end of the first term of graduate enrollment. The program requires comprehensive examinations and 36 semester hours (i.e., professional core, literacy or content-based instructional courses, and a capstone experience which includes an intense literacy practicum, thesis option, or product of learning). The capstone experience also includes a research methodology course which serves as the prerequisite experience for the practicum, thesis, or development of the product.
