Program Info

Elementary Education: The Elementary Education major prepares students to take charge of K-6 grade classrooms across our region and beyond. This nationally recognized program is built upon exceptional partnerships with public schools throughout central and western North Carolina. Students are immersed in a variety of courses that prepare them to effectively plan and deliver research-based instruction, differentiate the curriculum for all learners, use the latest instructional technologies and develop a global perspective for 21st century classrooms. A strong emphasis is placed on the critical importance of serving students with disabilities and other exceptionalities within the regular and special education classrooms. As such, all Elementary Education majors have the opportunity to earn teacher licensure in both Elementary Education and Special Education. We believe that this is the best preparation a future teacher can receive for today's classrooms. For more information visit the Elementary Education Degree page.

Middle Grades Education: The Middle Grades Education major prepares students to take charge of 6th-9th grade classrooms across our region and beyond. This nationally recognized program is built upon exceptional partnerships with public schools throughout central and western North Carolina. Students are immersed in a variety of courses which prepare them to effectively plan and deliver research-based instruction, differentiate the curriculum for all learners, use the latest instructional technologies and develop a global perspective for 21st century classrooms. A strong emphasis is placed on the critical importance of serving students with disabilities and other exceptionalities within the regular classroom. In addition, the Middle Grades program focuses on helping students understand young adolescents and how to effectively manage middle school classrooms. We believe that this is the best preparation a future teacher can receive for today's classrooms. For more information, visit the Middle Grades Education page.
