Elementary Education (BSEd)

Loyola's elementary education program prepares you to teach children in grades 1-6 with the only field-based curriculum in the country.

Gain experience in school settings right from the start of your freshman year, graduating with the equivalent of a year of full-time teaching. Plus, your degree includes English as a Second Language (ESL) and International Baccalaureate (IB) endorsements. Candidates with these endorsements are highly sought after to work in Chicago Public Schools and many other school districts upon graduation. You'll not only be in demand as a teacher, but better prepared to help students and make a positive impact on their lives.
