This emphasis recognizes that teachers play a vital role in the development of children, introducing them to numbers, language, science, and social studies. Elementary teachers facilitate student learning through interactive class discussions, educational activities, “hands-on” learning, and one-on-one assistance. This emphasis offers a core of interdisciplinary and specialized courses that provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary for communicating concepts to children, and an introduction to social, political and economic issues that influence the field of public education.CDES Advisory Committee

This major can prepare students with either a specific or interdisciplinary focus in order to pursue similar majors at four-year institutions. Student should refer to the catalog of their prospective transfer institution and consult a counselor.
