Introduction
Influencing people's lives for the better is one of the satisfactions of teaching. Education, above all other professions, allows you to share yourself with others as you help them grow, learn, mature, and identify that which will have a lasting impact for good throughout their lives.

The Elementary Education Department offers a Bachelor of Science Degree with a major in Elementary Education. Students will be exposed to a strong theoretical knowledge base with extensive practical experience in several public school experiences. Students successfully completing the program will be eligible to apply for a K-8 Idaho Education Teaching Credential.

The Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood/Special Education is a rigorous academic program integrating theory and best practice for working with typically developing and/or children with special needs from birth through age eight.

Students who successfully complete this program will be eligible to apply for the Blended Early Childhood Education/Early Childhood Special Education Idaho Teaching License, which allows them to teach general or special education classes in kindergarten through third grade. Students may also choose to work with young children and their families in home, agency, and preschool settings.

Applied coursework and fieldwork involving children in a variety of settings will prepare students for successful career experiences. Students will demonstrate knowledge, understanding and application of skills during three different supervised intervention/teaching experiences: (1) infants and toddlers in home or agency settings, (2) preschoolers in private or public preschools, and (3) kindergarten through third grade children in public schools.

The secondary education program serves many other campus departments that offer secondary teaching majors and minors. Secondary education is not a major. Students interested in pursuing secondary certification will select a teaching major and teaching minor or enroll in one of the available composite programs. Students successfully completing a secondary education program will be eligible to apply for grade 6-12 Idaho Education Teaching Credential.

    Please be aware of the vast number of education students that BYU-Idaho is trying to service. Because of this, be aware of the following:
    1. There is a STRONG probability that your student-teaching placement will be a distant site. (Seattle, Las Vegas, Salt Lake City, Mesa, etc.)
    2. Distant-site placements are limited to certain locations that have been organized for BYU-Idaho students. These sites have been researched and contacts made in order to help BYU-Idaho students gain a student-teaching experience.
    3. There will be a disruption in your regular routine in order to participate in your student-teaching experience. You may need to move to a new area and re-establish your "home". This may require your purchasing new items that deem necessary. Also be aware that there may be additional expenses in transportation, housing, food, and utilities involved in your distant-site placement.
    4. If you are in a campus-based placement, there will most likely be significant commuting for many of you.
    5. There will be some unanticipated program expenses that develop through the program such as Praxis PLT, fingerprinting, and/or background checks. These are expenses that are not BYU-Idaho based, but mandated by school districts or the state.
