The elementary education program is based on a broad general education background. Course and field experiences meet the developmental and content standards for the state of Indiana. Students graduate with a content major in elementary education.
Elementary education majors are prepared to teach many subject areas and meet the needs of diverse learners. They also are prepared to work with students individually, in small groups and in large groups. They learn about the many components that play a role in strong and effective classroom teaching. In essence, the elementary education program provides students with a strong balance of both practical application and educational theory and principles.
