What will I learn in an integrated elementary teaching degree program?

This innovative program prepares students to become state-certified elementary teachers for grades K-8. Students choose an area of specialization that prepares them to be highly effective in today's diverse classrooms and that makes them eligible for an additional license or endorsement after graduation. It’s well-documented across the country that numerous factors have contributed to a strong need for dually certified educators who can teach all students, including English-language learners and those with disabilities, in one classroom. The integrated elementary program specifically addresses this need.
