Program Purpose:

The Bachelor of Science (B.S.) in Elementary Education program is a limited access program open to students who have completed their Associate of Arts degree. The B.S. degree in Elementary Education prepares students for certification in Elementary Education (K-6) with endorsements in Reading (K-12) and English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL, K-12).  

The B.S. program in Elementary Education is also certified by the Florida Department of Education’s Initial Teacher Preparation Program (ITP) per Florida Statutes and standards as specified in Rule 6A-5.066. Our curriculum offers coursework and field experience aligned with Standard 2: Quality of Content Knowledge and Teaching Methods, and Standard 3: Quality of Clinical Placement, Feedback, and Candidate Performance which ensures that students’ mastery of the Uniform Core Curricula (UCC) effectively prepares them for all portions of the Florida Teacher Certification Examination (FTCE).  

Additionally, our program is designed as a holistic approach to teacher education by integrating the professional soft skills in combination with the content knowledge and field experience to effectively position graduates to be competitive in the job market.
