First-year students interested in pursuing a career in education have many options in terms of selecting a major. Students may select from a wide variety of majors and minors which will well prepare them for future teacher training and teaching positions. It is strongly encouraged that students work closely with both their academic advisor and the pre-education advisor, Alemayehu Bahta, when selecting classes.
Incorporate a variety of courses in basic subject areas such as English, math, social studies, language, life science and physical, earth or space science.
We also encourage consideration of a major with an interdisciplinary focus. The BA in Interdisciplinary Liberal Studies with Specialization in Elementary Education (K-8) is a great degree choice at SU due to the program's broad intellectual training and flexibility in curriculum.
It is advisable to choose a major, double major or minor in the subject-area you want to teach. This way you will complete the coursework required for the endorsement-area in in which you desire to teach.
