Bachelor of Arts in Educational Studies
Elementary Education Option
The Elementary Education Option prepares students to become certified teachers in Washington state elementary schools. Upon completion of this highly structured, two-year course of study, students meet all the requirements to be recommended for Washington State Residency teacher certification.
During the program, students also complete a 20 credit concentration in either English To Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) or Special Education (SPED). Both concentrations will qualify teacher candidates to be recommended to add these endorsements to an elementary education endorsement.
