The VSU Department of Elementary Education offers undergraduate and graduate degrees and certifications.
The mission of the Department of Elementary Education is based on the COE theme, "Preparing Professionals for Service." In reflection of this theme, the faculty is committed to preparing professional teachers who can effectively demonstrate the knowledge, competencies, and skills necessary to teach children in ways that enhance their overall growth. They will also be able to make reflective, ethical, theoretical, and pedagogical sound decisions when planning and implementing curricula and programs. In collaboration with public schools, other child-care professionals, and community agencies, the diverse Elementary education faculty strives to provide information and experiences that will broaden students' perspectives to encompass a global view of the teaching/learning process, while maintaining a clear vision of the needs of children and families in our service area. It is our intention to maintain high standards of professional excellence to prepare our students to successfully teach and administer programs in a variety of educational settings.
