Elementary Education

The Elementary Education program prepares teachers to be vital agents of change in classrooms, schools, and communities. Our graduates create transformative experiences that help young people to learn.

Elementary Education majors are held to the highest standards of teacher preparation as they engage in a combination of coursework and field experiences at three Boston public schools. Graduates gain key knowledge of current educational and scientific research, empathy for students, and the practical skills needed to succeed today.

“We prepare teachers who are knowledgeable about what they teach, proficient in how they teach, and, as professionals, confident in their abilities to engage parents, caregivers, colleagues, and community members in the process of educating all students.”
