B.S. Elementary Education

The Department of Elementary Education offers the Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education.

The Elementary Education program is one of 12 teacher education programs offered at UNCP.  The program is designed to (1) provide experiences for candidates to develop the content knowledge necessary to be a successful teacher in the Kindergarten-Grade 6 learning environment, as noted by the North Carolina Teaching Content Standards; (2) provide candidates with experiences in pedagogical content knowledge, as noted by the North Carolina Professional Teaching Standards; and (3) provide experiences whereby candidates develop into professional educators who are committed, collaborative, and competent, as noted in the UNCP School of Education Conceptual Framework.

It is our desire that the Elementary Education graduates will motivate and engage their Kindergarten-Grade 6 students in active learning and that they will inspire them to become lifelong learners. This program is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education (NCATE) and North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) and provides the means for candidates to earn a Standard Professional I license to teach in the state of North Carolina.  

Each Elementary Education major or licensure candidate is assigned an advisor who helps the student plan and approves his or her program of study.
