Bachelor of Science in Education
Edu301 - The Bachelor of Science in Education/Elementary (BSEd/E) is an undergraduate degree program preparing candidates for teacher licensure. The guiding philosophy of the BSEd/E program is to provide students with the skills and knowledge that will allow them to become competent and effective educators. Edu 301 -This program focuses on elementary student learning by developing the skills of the educator responsible for that learning. Student teaching is an integral component of the Teacher Education Program. It provides students with a field-based experience at the appropriate grade and content level. Student teachers work with a cooperating teacher from a school site and with a University of Phoenix faculty advisor.

Throughout the program, students are required to complete a minimum of 100 hours of verified field experiences, covering a variety of developmental levels. The focus of each observation will relate to specific course content. Edu 390 -Documentation will be maintained in the student’s professional portfolio. These courses fulfill only part of the 120-minimum-credit requirement for degree completion (124 for Kansas students).
