Not all children have the same educational needs. Careers for educators are in high demand, but being able to work with many different types of students helps open the door to even more opportunities. Our elementary education degree teaches you the skills you’ll need to handle a very diverse set of students.

Our curriculum includes 24 credits of general education requirements, classroom development and teaching experiences.
The curriculum at Baker absolutely helped me. I had great instructors—instructors who were educators...it was important to me for those instructors to connect with me.
Upon completing the program and passing the required state tests, teachers will be eligible to apply for the endorsement.
