Undergraduate Programs

Teaching is more than a job; it's a calling. The Elementary/Early Childhood Program at Slippery Rock University has a long and enduring history of developing highly-qualified educators. As a student in this major, you will learn the knowledge, skills, and dispositions that define exemplary teaching.

Options are another important component of finding your calling as an educator. In addition to earning a degree in Elementary/Early Childhood Education, you have the option to dual major in Special Education or complete your Elementary/Early Childhood Education degree through our International Teaching Program.

All candidates completing this program and student teaching are eligible to receive Pennsylvania certification after achieving a passing or qualifying score on Pennsylvania Department of Education required exam(s). If you are interested in teaching in another state, please contact the Department of Education in that state.
