Students are encouraged to complete the online reading endorsement courses
prior to graduation (EDU 330, 340, 350, and 360). If recommended by the Education
Department, the completion of the Elementary Education major qualifies students for K-6
teaching certification in the State of Iowa. Students considering relocation to another state after
graduation should check licensure requirements with the state’s Department of Education.

Certification Tracks

The Education Department offers coursework toward the completion of licensure requirements
in several endorsement areas in conjunction with an approved major. Students must follow their
major requirements in addition to satisfying each of the licensure requirements described
below.

Note: If students choose to pursue a BSS degree, they must check with an education professor
to make sure they are meeting the general education requirements as stipulated by the State of
Iowa.
