National Louis University's Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education is for students who would like to earn their elementary education degree in order to attain an Illinois Professional Educator License (PEL) endorsed for self-contained general education (grades 1-6).


Choose Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from National Louis University if you:

  • Want to teach 1st through 6th grade
  • Are looking for a well-established and highly regarded program
  • Would like to study with a group of students who will work together and support one another throughout the program
  • Need flexible learning options


Many job openings will continue to result from the need to replace the large number of teachers expected to retire during this same period. Currently, our country's education schools don't graduate an adequate number of qualified teachers to meet the demand, and job prospects are best in areas including urban and rural school districts.
