Elementary Education (1-5)

The Elementary Education Program prepares teachers for the elementary school s 1-5.  This program provides the candidates with the basic knowledge and understanding the middle childhood years, including their physical, mental, and social development. Candidates will reflect on their roles in helping these children become academically successful. The program provides opportunities to work in schools, under the guidance and supervision of master teachers and university faculty. Candidates are provided early field experiences in diverse settings as well as opportunities for clinical practice prior to student teaching. The program requires 180 hours of field experiences prior to student teaching and 270 clock hours of student teaching. Candidates must provide their own transportation for clinical experiences and student teaching in schools in the Greater Metropolitan New Orleans area.
