For those beginning the Elementary Education Program in spring 2011 or later, a bachelor's degree leads to licensure that will allow opportunities for teaching K–6th grade. The capstone experience of the program may be completed by one of two options: student teaching or internship. Student teaching is a one-semester experience in which elementary education candidates complete two different blocks of student teaching: one in a lower elementary grade and one in an upper elementary grade. An internship is a full school-year experience in which the candidate is hired by one of the BYU-Public School Partnership school districts to be the teacher of an elementary grade class, receiving from the district one-half of a first-year teacher's salary plus district benefits. Please note that not all students are eligible for the internship option. Contact Education Student Services for further information.
