Elementary Education Major & Teacher Certification Program

Grades 1-6

The Drury University Elementary Education Major & Teacher Certification Program is unique for its partnership with the neighborhood schools and the Yale University Child Study Center in New Haven, CT. Education majors connect theory with practice by completing clinical experiences as an integrated part of their professional course work.

For example, reading, mathematics and science methods courses schedule blocks of time when the class and the professor work as a team with teachers at local elementary schools to deliver individualized instruction to children. The result is increased academic performance by the children, and better qualified education students who graduate with practical experience and the ability to connect theory to practice.
