Elementary Education
Bachelor of Science

The Elementary Education program at Ferris State University is designed to provide a balanced blend of theory and practice. Students have the opportunity to obtain the Michigan Elementary Provisional Certification which allows an individual to teach kindergarten through fifth grade and grades sixth through eighth in minor subjects. Throughout the program students complete at least 570 hours in a variety of hands-on, field-based experiences in the K-8 classroom. A background in state-of-the-art educational technology prepares students to integrate computer technology into instruction.

The Elementary Education Program requires the completion of two elementary education minors giving students a broad academic base in language arts, math, or science. Students may add a third minor for Early Childhood to add the ZS endorsement to their certification. The professional education courses include field-based experiences supervised by instructional teams comprised of teacher educators, professors from the content area disciplines, and expert K-8 teachers.
