- *Requires 25-hour prepracticum classroom experience and journal. Journal topics are related to course. Prepracticum hours must be completed in any sophomore or junior semester, ideally one experience in sophomore year and one experience in junior year.
- Two courses in the curriculum must be designated “Writing Intensive.”
- MATH 371 and MATH 377 are offered in alternate spring semesters, so either MATH 371 or MATH 377 will be taken in the spring semester of the junior year, and the other will be taken in the spring semester of the senior year.

Note: Concurrent completion of the Elementary Education major, which yields a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Elementary Education, is required for the Teacher Preparation - Elementary School Track.

Note: the General University Requirements in Aesthetics and Cultural Studies can be satisfied by taking a single course that has a designation (CA) of fulfilling both requirements.
