Middle Childhood through Early Adolescence (MC–EA)
Age 6–approx. 12–13
The Elementary Education (MC–EA) major prepares students to teach in elementary schools (grades 1-6) and in the core content areas of language arts, mathematics, science and social studies in middle schools (grades 6-8). Students may choose to acquire dual licensure in both regular education and cross categorical special education.
