Early Childhood for Elementary Education
Why Choose Teaching Majors and Minors for Elementary Education Majors?
The Elementary Education program requires the completion of two academic teaching minors in addition to a planned program to fulfill the subject area requirements of the program. Students may choose from the subject areas of mathematics, integrated science, and language arts or a major in social studies.
In addition to the two academic minors, elementary education students may choose the Early Childhood Education minor (ZS). This minor prepares students to understand young children at the pre-school to 3rd grade levels. Many school districts in the state of Michigan require this additional endorsement to be hired in grades K-3.
The early childhood minor is an optional minor and is in addition to the subject area minors required.
See Elementary Education, Bachelor of Science for additional program details.
A 2.50 GPA is required to successfully complete the early childhood minor.
