Bachelor of Arts — Elementary Education

Designed to align with the rigorous standards set forth by the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI), the B.A./B.S. in Elementary Education focuses on traditional theory, fundamental coursework and contemporary teaching methods so students may gain comprehensive knowledge blended with real-world classroom experience and biblical principles to positively teach and guide children through the all-important elementary years. Students will be equipped to identify and address each child's individual needs, seek licensure in elementary education, and ultimately become effective teachers in the classroom, whether in a public or private school setting. In addition to covering the traditional course subjects of math, social studies and English, to name a few, the program also includes: child/adolescent and educational psychology, instructional technology, instructional strategies, and exceptional children.
