4-YEAR BA IN ELEMENTARY EDUCATION PROGRAM

Considering Elementary Education? Give our new 4-year program a look!

It is a traditional, 4 year program on-campus at West Virginia University in Morgantown that will prepare you to earn teacher certification in multi-subjects, grades K-6 upon graduation along with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education.

This program prepares you to be an outstanding elementary educator, requiring 4 semesters of work in schools before the final, student teaching semester. That means LOTS of experience…over 600 hours!

Another thing to consider, you could begin teaching after graduation and earn a variety of Master’s degrees WHILE you are working! You could earn a graduate degree that specializes you in a variety of areas, like Special Education, Reading, School Counseling, Advanced Elementary Education, Public Education Administration, and more. You can choose to be an expert in a specific field this way, which makes you very marketable. Also, many of our graduate programs are even online!
