Do you dream about mentoring young people and making an impact on the next generation? Then a career in elementary education could be exactly what you’re looking for.
Our elementary education majors go on to work in elementary and early-childhood programs throughout Oregon and the rest of the country. A bachelor’s degree in elementary education also prepares you for a career of influence. Many of us remember our elementary school teachers and can appreciate the impact they had on our lives. For this reason, few careers offer such rewarding life experiences.
Many universities only offer a graduate-level fifth-year program in elementary education. At George Fox, you can achieve initial licensure for elementary education – at the early childhood and elementary levels – by completing our four-year program and passing the required tests. Course work and training for the English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) endorsement is also embedded to add to your qualifications and teaching license. This endorsement is highly sought after in school districts across the country and will greatly increase your employment prospects.
What further distinguishes our program is the fact we offer a Christian college environment that encourages not only academic – but spiritual – growth.
