The Elementary Education program at the University of Kentucky prepares students to become Elementary Education teachers, and it also lays the groundwork for several other career possibilities in fields like School Leadership, Educational Psychology, Curriculum Design, State Policy, Publishing, Higher Education, and Corporate Training. Skills gained in the Elementary Education program open the doors to an exciting future.

Earning a degree from our program means you have proven yourself to be an effective teacher, gained valuable field experience, and forged important connections in the schools where you may one day be teaching.

We encourage you to explore our Bachelor of Arts degree in Elementary Education and our world-class program faculty, as well as familiarize yourself with the resources and engagement opportunities available to our students.
