Overview

The Elementary Education program prepares teachers who, having gained their own liberal education, help elementary school age children learn by improving the teaching they receive in the home, school, church, and community.

The program provides the opportunity for prospective teachers to learn about the culture of the elementary school, develop a solid foundation in basic principles of teaching and learning that originate in educational theory and research, and become proficient in systematically applying those basic principles.
