Recommended Course Sequence
The Elementary Education major is designed in accordance with guidelines established by the South Carolina State Department of Education. The program consists of a general education strand; a professional education strand; and methods courses in science and social studies, mathematics, language arts and reading, fine arts, physical education, and literature. A teacher candidate learns strategies for teaching and assessing students in 2nd through 6th grade classrooms in these major courses. This program is nationally recognized by the Association for Childhood Education International (ACEI).
No grade below “C” in a course required for the major or minor (including cognates and specified electives) will count toward satisfying that course requirement. This policy does not refer to general education requirements or elective courses.
