Master’s Degree and Teaching Certification
About the Elementary Education Master's Degree Program
The Elementary Education program is designed to allow students seeking Elementary Education certification to attain a master’s degree concurrently. The degree is not required for certification, and individual requirements for certification may vary based on academic transcripts. Students should expect field observations to be part of course requirements and should anticipate demands on morning or afternoon times to fulfill observations. In addition, students are strongly encouraged to gain field experience by visiting schools, volunteering, or conducting extracurricular activities with schoolchildren.
