Welcome!

The Department of Elementary and Middle Grades Education offers undergraduate degrees with teaching licensure in elementary education and four content areas in middle grades education.  The department also offers graduate degrees in elementary education and middle grades education. The programs are committed to the preparation of teachers who are knowledgeable, reflective, technologically proficient, and skilled in meeting the needs of a diverse student population.

Inherent in our mission is the preparation of excellent teachers for the children and young adolescents of North Carolina. Our administration and faculty seek to exceed excellence in preparation of our teachers, not just for pride, but because the education of the children and the young adolescents of North Carolina and the future of our state and nation depend on our work. To achieve our mission, one current project is our involvement as a state leader in the National Teacher Performance Assessment project in partnership with Stanford University.
