Elementary (K-6) and Middle Grades (6-9) Education Programs

Elementary Education Student-Teacher in classroom with kids


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.
