Elementary Education Programs
Both bachelors and master’s degrees are offered in elementary education. The bachelor’s degree in elementary education will prepare the student for their teacher certification. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, teachers act as facilitators or coaches, using classroom presentations or individual instruction to help students learn and apply concepts in subjects such as science, mathematics, and English. They are responsible for planning lessons, preparing, administering and grading tests, and maintaining classroom discipline. Master’s degrees in elementary education help to specialize teaching skills and advance the teacher’s education.
