Why Elementary Education at Bay Path University?
The Elementary Education degree program curriculum will prepare you with the skills and knowledge necessary to create a safe and inclusive learning environment for all children. The elementary education bachelor's degree program will prepare you to teach elementary school grades 1-6. Bay Path University provides both licensure and non-licensure programs.
As a student in the elementary education degree licensure program, you will:
- Complete a supervised field-based pre-practicum and student teaching practicum in a public elementary school classroom
- Gain a level of experience for field-based work that exceeds the requirements of the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
- Earn an initial license issued by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education
- Develop the background necessary to pursue certification and licensure in other states
The elementary education degree non-licensure program is designed for students who do not wish to pursue public teaching certification but wish to pursue a career working with children or a graduate degree in education or psychology. As a student in the elementary education degree non-licensure program, you will complete all the requirements of an education degree, except the practicum and Massachusetts Tests of Educational Licensure.
