It’s so important for children get off to a good start in school. Expand your knowledge and develop the skills to energize young minds through Anderson University’s evening program: Elementary Education with Add-On Certification in Early Childhood Education
Pre-K through sixth grade
This program can increase employment opportunities for adult students who want to teach young children. With the early childhood education add-on, you’ll be equipped to teach at any level from pre-kindergarten through sixth grade. You’ll study teaching theories and methods while also gaining an understanding of these students’ learning characteristics.
Graduates can seek certification to teach in public or private school classrooms. While the vast majority become teachers, some grads head to the mission field, working inside and outside of the classroom. Others work with education-focused nonprofits.
You’ll enjoy small class sizes and one-on-one interaction with caring faculty who’ll share their experiences from the very types of classrooms you’ll be teaching in one day, enabling you to marry academic understanding with practical know-how.
You’ll graduate with a Bachelor of Science in elementary education and recommendation for elementary and early childhood certification through the South Carolina Department of Education. Many other states will also recognize this teaching certification, so if you plan to teach elsewhere, check with that state’s department of education to verify acceptance. In addition, our College of Education is accredited by the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education.
