Elementary Education/Multiple Subject - (Grades K-8)
About the Degree
This degree is for undergraduates wanting to teach elementary or middle school or become a special education teacher.
Our Unique Four Year Program
Most programs in the state, automatically, require a fifth year of study to become a teacher. Pacific's unique program provides you with a pathway to earn your bachelor's degree and credential in just four years. Working with your advisor, you'll find that you can meet all of your general education requirements, earn your teaching credential and even have room for electives without a fifth year of study.
Through your program you'll participate in courses and apprentice as a teacher in our partner public schools. Your experience in the schools will follow and support your development as a teacher.
You'll begin by observing credentialed teachers in their classrooms before you proceed to tutoring, working one-on-one with students and in small groups. Finally, you'll be teaching entire classes yourself. We're there with you in these classes, serving as your guides and mentors. It's a supportive and proven approach that provides aspiring teachers the experience they need to excel in the classroom.
