An elementary education major prepares future teachers to teach grades kindergarten through six. Students combine an elementary education major with specific passions through endorsements related to an age group, type of learner, or subject area.

BVU’s elementary education major is your opportunity to make an impact on children of today and all of our future. The program will provide you with extensive and varied field experience opportunities and the knowledge and skills needed to be a high quality elementary teacher.

BVU also provides opportunities to focus your teaching career in with the following endorsements based on interest:

  • Young children – early childhood endorsement
  • Older children – middle school endorsement
  • Integrated science, technology, engineering, & math – STEM endorsement
  • Children with diverse needs – special education endorsement
  • Teaching English – Teaching English as a Second Language (TESL) endorsement

And at BVU, a reading endorsement is automatically embedded in the elementary education major, providing each and every student a key, competitive advantage in the job market.
