About the Elementary Education Program

The Elementary Education program is housed within the Department of Curriculum and Instruction located in the Reich College of Education, suite 205.  The program maintains a basic philosophy which centers around the commitment to rigorous preparation for teachers who will provide significant contributions to the field of education. Faculty and students come together as a community of learners who inquire about and examine the nature of teaching, education, and learning.  Teachers must have the ability and commitment to solve problems, make effective decisions, use emerging technologies, and develop alternative strategies for culturally diverse and exceptional students to meet the demands of the 21st century. You can review the specific set of requirements for Elementary Education on the Program of Study page.
