Overview

Elementary Education prepares teachers for grades one through six.  A minimum of 120 semester hours, excluding basic military science, is necessary for graduation. Prior to proceeding to student teaching in an Illinois Education Preparation Program at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, prospective candidates must take and pass an Illinois approved test of basic skills. Approved tests consist of the Illinois Test of Academic Proficiency (TAP), ACT or SAT with approved scores. Previously passed Illinois Test of Basic Skills (096, 300 or 400) may be used to meet this requirement.

Undergraduate students who want to:

  • Plan lessons that teach students subjects, such as reading and math, and skills, such as studying and communicating with others
  • Assess students to evaluate their abilities, strengths, and weaknesses
  • Work with students individually to help them overcome specific learning challenges
