Frostburg State University’s Elementary Education (with Concentration in STEM) bachelor’s program prepares students for certification to teach grades 1-6 in Maryland in a specific content area. 


The combination of rigorous coursework and extended classroom experience in the Elementary Education (with Concentration in STEM) course from Frostburg State University has resulted in our graduates being sought-after to fill teaching positions in school districts throughout the region.

In 2013 FSU was approved as the first college or university in Maryland to offer an elementary/middle dual certification program for those wanting to concentrate on middle school education in grades 4-9.  Students who choose this option will be eligible for certification in grades 1-9. The Frostburg program is the only program in Maryland to offer dual certification in this area.

  • Use our individualized concentration option to build your own degree program around specific teaching interests, such as foreign language, or technology.
  • Be part of an elementary education program with a high rate of graduate placement in regional Maryland schools.


  • Complete extensive field experiences that prepare you well for a teaching career.
  • Join a learning community to develop a deeper understanding of the teaching profession and gain skills that help you become a strong advocate for education and a leader in the field.
  • Use FSU educational resources such as the Children’s Literature Center, which integrates our students into the Frostburg community to promote reading and to build skills for working with children of different ages.
  • Create and present a portfolio of your work and complete the PRAXIS II content knowledge and pedagogy tests required by the state of Maryland.
  • Join the Frostburg Student Education Association and network with other teachers and prospective teachers in the field.


The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics anticipates 12 percent growth in kindergarten and elementary teaching positions through 2022. This is about the average growth anticipated across all occupations.
