BA Educational Studies with Elementary Education Option


Bachelor of Arts in Educational Studies

Elementary Education Option

The Elementary Education Option prepares students to become certified teachers in K-8 schools in the state of Washington. Upon completion of this highly structured, 2-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 (K-8) endorsement.
