elementary & middle school education
If you desire to become an effective elementary and middle school teacher, Huntington University has a program for you. Our curriculum features a comprehensive series of courses, field experiences, and of course, 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 and middle school program complete a three-week, full-day practicum in a multicultural school in Fort Wayne. At Huntington, you will gain wide exposure to different grade levels and styles of teaching and learning.
Middle school programs are available in math, science, language arts, and social studies.
Elementary and Middle grades dual licensure will allow candidates to be licensed for elementary and middle school classrooms (typically grades K-9).
Huntington students have a very high rate of passage on state competency tests. Our NCATE-accredited program is specifically designed for students who wish to obtain an Indiana teaching license. Reciprocity agreements with other states help our graduates find employment all across the country.
