Elementary Education

The Elementary Education Associates of Science (AS) program curriculum prepares students to enter a highly demanded profession. Upon completion, the graduate can expect employment as a paraprofessional in a tribal, public or private school setting. Most of the program courses contain a field experience component. This allows the student to gain first-hand knowledge of the best practices in education from experienced teachers. The degree is designed to transfer to a university bachelor degree program for those students who wish to continue their education. Transfer degree options include elementary education teachers, special education teachers, school counselors, physical education teachers, coaching, as well as a number of other areas.

Students considering the field of education must pass a background check that is completed upon registration for the program. Any students choosing this program must be free from certain criminal convictions in order to be eligible for employment upon graduation.

Teachers in the elementary education program withhold graduate degrees throughout the field of education. They have a wealth of classroom experience as well as a teacher licensure for the State of North Dakota. Teacher credentials include online teaching and learning and are certified by the state in vocational education.
