The elementary education K-8 curriculum and five options within the program are available in the department. Early childhood education, mathematics, reading, science, and special education are offered to permit students to specialize in these specific areas in addition to completing the elementary school curriculum. The library media and reading options provide additional teaching endorsements for kindergarten through grade 12 (K-12). The other options, while not providing an additional endorsement in the specialties addressed, do allow for added study in each area.
