The elementary education program exists to prepare qualified preservice educators for the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod ministry. Graduates with an elementary major are available for assignment to teach kindergarten through eighth grade (K-8) in elementary schools of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod and are qualified for Minnesota state licensure in elementary education (K-6).

In addition to the general education courses, students must complete additional required content courses, professional education courses, and field experieces as outlined below. Consult the program plan to see how the major may be completed in four years.  Following the plan will also ensure that the appropriate general education electives are taken.
