Bachelor's Degree Programs

Studies in the College of Education begin in a curriculum described as pre-professional, either elementary education pre-professional (EDPPE) or secondary education pre-professional (EDPPS). In this curriculum approximately 50 semester hours of general education will be completed including prerequisites for the professional courses. Upon completion of at least 50 semester hours, as well as the teacher education admission requirements, students will be eligible to make formal application to the professional education program. At that time, the curriculum will be changed to a degree track curriculum in either elementary or secondary education.
