Elementary Education Major

Elon's major in elementary education prepares candidates to teach in elementary grades. Upon successful completion of the program and all licensure requirements, graduates are eligible for a North Carolina K-6 teaching license and will be qualified to teach in kindergarten through sixth grade.

Candidates majoring in elementary education take foundational courses in a wide range of subject areas from those taught in elementary school and also complete professional education courses.

Students are strongly encouraged to pursue a minor in the Arts and Sciences.
