Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education

The Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education qualifies candidates to seek licensure in elementary education (kindergarten through 6th grade). The program of study helps future teachers discover the links between general education courses, professional education curriculum, pedagogical theory, and clinical experience. The nationally ranked Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education program is offered on-campus and online and provides both internship and student teaching experiences in diverse environments. Candidates have multiple opportunities to apply their knowledge and skills with measurable outcomes and feedback from university faculty. In addition to our traditional elementary program, we offer a unique Teacher Residency in Elementary Education for students interested in an immersive hands-on educational experience. Read more about the FHSU Teacher Residency. Each state has it's own licensure requirements. The programs we offer prepare you for licensure in Kansas. If you live in a different state, you will need to contact your state's Department of Education to determine it's license transfer requirements. Your education degree from FHSU is valid in any state as long as you become licensed to teach in that particular state.
