Overview

The minor does not have to lead to licensing, but the department strongly suggests choosing a minor or concentration that will enhance their major, such as the reading minor or the special education minor (mild intervention)

The Elementary Education program at Anderson University - Indiana focuses on teacher preparation both in the classroom and in the field, leading to success on licensing exams. In preparing for careers as elementary educators, students participate in classroom observations as well as completing a semester of student teaching. Students may also volunteer for organizations like College Mentors for Kids in a variety of capacities that both serve the community and broaden their experience in working with young people.
