Elementary Education

Edgewood College was founded as a teacher's college in 1927. With 90 years of experience, we continue to excel in the area of teacher preparation. As a student in the School of Education, you will benefit from a wide range of experiences both in and out of the classroom. Your professors and advisors will help you determine your licensing interests, identify the school setting that best suits your strengths and develop a network of professional contacts. 

The Elementary Education major, combined with a minor of your choice, prepares you to teach children and youth ages six through thirteen. We offer many minors to increase your expertise and marketability, from bilingual/ESL to ethnic studies to Spanish and many others, including all of the major content areas.


Edgewood College is a great place for Education majors because you have the opportunity to get out and work in the schools…so that you are prepared to student teach. The professors here care about your success.
