Overview

Program Overview

  • Bachelor of Arts
  • Elementary Education Major, Education Minor

As one of the most outstanding education programs in Florida, we believe that early and ongoing field experience is important and therefore one of the key components of our program. In collaboration with our school partners and the community, we stress a comprehensive approach to individual development that views students as active inquirers and participants in their own growth. As an elementary education major, you will participate in continuous field-based experiences leading up to the senior internship. Our program builds content knowledge, professional dispositions and pedagogical practices for every candidate. 

A minor in education can also complement your major with the ability to teach your craft. The focus is comprised of the purposes of education, the motivational atmosphere in which learning takes place and specific hardships that students often encounter in schools today.

Career Significance

Thomas Jefferson said, “Show me a nation that is both ignorant and free and I will show you a nation that never has been and never will be.” Jefferson knew that a democracy can only flourish when the citizens of that country are well-educated.

Teaching is a profession that educates the population. For the last several years, our current graduates - who remain in Florida - have had a 100% job placement rate. As a nationally accredited program, our degree is honored by all fifty states.
