The early childhood, elementary, and secondary education programs offer candidates the opportunity to acquire essential knowledge, skills, and dispositions for beginning teachers. Candidates who plan to teach children in preschool, kindergarten, or grades one through three should major in early childhood education. The B.A. programs in early childhood, elementary, and secondary education provide coursework leading to state teaching licenses.

Our program in education studies does not lead to a teaching license. Instead, it provides students with the skills they need for employment in a variety of settings. These settings include local, state or federal government education positions; industry and/or trade association education positions; or education positions in hospitals, museums, foundations, professional associations, or charitable organizations.
