If you desire to become an effective elementary teacher, Huntington University has a program for you. Our curriculum features a comprehensive series of courses, field experiences, and, student teaching during the senior year.
But student teaching will not be your first experience in the classroom. At Huntington, you will gain hands-on, practical experiences on a regular basis. Students in the elementary program complete a three-week, full-day practicum in a multicultural school in Fort Wayne. Our elementary education program also includes an eight-week field experience during the junior year. At Huntington, you will gain wide exposure to different grade levels and styles of teaching and learning.
Huntington University offers three types of Elementary-Dual Licensure Programs:
- Elementary and Special Education
- Elementary and Middle School Education
- Elementary Education and Teaching English Learners
Elementary Education with Concentration:
Students who do not complete one of the dual licensure programs are required by the State of Indiana to complete an additional content concentration. These do no add any additional teaching certification to the Elementary license. Non-teaching concentrations can be completed in Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, or Fine Arts.
