As an elementary educator, you’ll be responsible for curriculum and instruction in multiple subject areas. To prepare, all Inclusive Childhood Education Majors take a supporting Liberal Arts & Sciences Concentration to learn to teach math, science, social studies, language arts, technology, and more. Through this concentration as part of your bachelor’s program, you’ll be ready to teach diverse learners the full elementary curriculum and inspire their love of learning as you work to gain the competency to achieve licensure in Elementary Education (K-6) and Special Education (K-8).
