Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Academic Programs of Study

The elementary school teacher must demonstrate the ability to teach several disciplines, including social studies, language arts, math and science. Through coursework that includes art, history, literature, math, science, geography, economics, and politics, the Liberal Studies major provides the interdisciplinary background needed to meet the demands of the elementary school curriculum. In addition, rigorous education courses generate the knowledge necessary to succeed as a classroom teacher. Finally, through internships and practica, education students participate in elementary school classes during each of their four years at Endicott. This thorough integration of theory and practice offers future teachers a unique opportunity to apply their academic knowledge to the classroom experience from the start of their college career.
