The School of Teaching and Learning educates prospective elementary and middle school teachers and current teaching professionals who will work with young students and adolescents. Our program provides a solid foundation in instructional practices that research suggests best support student learning.
We offer several options for students interested in elementary or middle grades education. Undergraduates can enroll in a program to earn a Bachelor of Science in Education (B.S.Ed.) degree in Elementary Education or Middle Grades Education along with an initial N.C. teaching license for grades K-6 or 6-9.
Teachers with earned undergraduate degrees in elementary or middle grades education may
be interested in the Master of Arts in Education (M.A.Ed.) degree.
Students who have earned bachelor degrees in a field other than education can choose to work on a second bachelor's degree.
