If you dream of becoming an elementary school teacher, earning your elementary education degree at Bluefield University is the first step. Our School of Education nurtures servant leaders in a Christ-centered environment that prepares you for the classroom in two ways. You’ll study the four primary subjects taught in elementary schools: English, math, science, and social studies. You’ll also study pedagogy (learning best practices) for delivering those lessons in creative, engaging ways.
Like all BU students, you’ll receive personalized attention from teachers who are experts in their field and the art of teaching. As Kelly Walker, 2019 graduate in elementary education and fifth-grade teacher, says, “The Bluefield University Education Department played a big role in who I am today. The professors cared for each student and helped us all reach our full potential. The class size was always small, so we became like a family. Everyone in the Education Department deserves a round of applause.”
When you earn an elementary education degree from BU, you’ll be ready for licensure testing and a fulfilling career teaching grades PreK – 6. Take the first step toward becoming an elementary school teacher by completing the information request form today and schedule a visit to Bluefield.
