Producing well-qualified teachers who care about their
students — that’s the goal of our elementary education programs. Although the
School of Education and Psychology also offers courses that meet state
requirements for certification in secondary education, our focus is on
preparing elementary school teachers who will give their young students the
best start for a lifetime of learning.
The elementary education curriculum at Alcorn State
University consists of a series of integrated and educational experiences for students preparing to teach
children in elementary school systems. These experiences are obtained through core courses,
specialized and professional education courses, clinical experiences, and directed teaching. All students
majoring in elementary education may obtain two specific areas of
concentrations by successfully completing 21 additional hours in each area. The
student selects the concentration hours in consultation with his/her advisor.
