Elementary Education

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.

Graduates of UW Oshkosh’s teacher education programs have a strong liberal arts background, a thorough grounding in their content area and a comprehensive understanding of the art and science of teaching. Completion of this program results in a Bachelor of Science in Education degree.
