Educational Studies

Elementary/Middle Education (EME: grades K-9)

The Elementary/Middle Education (EME) programs prepare future teachers to teach the four “regular education” major subject areas (English and language arts, math, science, social studies) in grades K-9. This single certification program will prepare future teachers with the skills and dispositions to serve all students in their classrooms and allows them to specialize in one or more areas of interest through declaring a content minor or by taking a collection of electives.

DES offers four other pathways to this regular education teaching license that also prepare students for an additional license in one of the following high needs areas: special education (SPE) (grades K-12), teaching English to speakers of other languages (TESOL) (grades K-12), Spanish (grades K-12), or French (grades K-12).
