Elementary Education Major
The Elementary Education Major is a signature program at Iowa Wesleyan, taught by experienced educators who are current in the field. The individual attention from faculty and advisors provides a strong mentorship environment for you, ensuring you will graduate on time.
Students involved in our program will:
- Develop the knowledge and skills to be successful
- Cultivate a knowledge base suitable for admittance into graduate study programs
- Expand global cultural awareness through levels of engagement
You will gain “real world,” hands-on experience with opportunities to be in the classroom as early as Spring of your Freshman year. With more student teaching and practicum hours than required, Iowa Wesleyan provides great networking connections for increased employment opportunities upon graduation.
With our Ninth-Semester program, you have the opportunity to complete several endorsements with little extra cost. The courses listed on the attached Checksheet are required for State licensure as an elementary teacher and are mandatory for those graduating in 2015 and later.
