Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education (Online)

Grand Canyon University’s Bachelor of Science in Elementary Education degree program prepares students for a career as a K–8 elementary teacher and to seek initial licensure. Earning this degree serves as a pathway for entering the field of education to lead in children’s mental, emotional and social development, as well as to provide students with a foundation in early basic academics (like math and reading). At this stage, teachers are responsible for identifying their students’ strengths and weaknesses. Based on those insights, teachers will tailor content, activities and projects that meet diverse student needs and interests. Other job responsibilities include motivating students, establishing behavioral rules and communicating with parents. With a bachelor’s degree, teachers will have the knowledge and tools to follow their passion for teaching and making a lasting impression on their students’ future. The teaching profession in elementary classrooms is challenging; however, the rewards of seeing children understand something or make a discovery on their own makes all the hard work worth it. This program’s curriculum further includes opportunities for relevant application of concepts, theories and research with an emphasis on elementary educational field experiences; teacher candidates complete 120 hours of observational and practice-based experiences. A 15-week student teaching experience further shapes students into career-ready individuals who can confidently enter the classroom. Graduates are eligible for a 120-credit elementary education teaching credential in the state of Arizona.
