Active Learning
Our program is particularly strong because starting with your first semester at Minot State you will enroll in education classes, which provide the chance to visit classrooms. Throughout your time at Minot State you will work with elementary-age students every year so you are prepared for student teaching. Elementary education faculty encourage active participation in discussions, hands-on learning, and simulations. We do more than lecture.

Our elementary education program is located in the new, spacious Swain Hall. We think you’ll like what it features:

  • Child-friendly classrooms
  • Relaxing and spacious atriums for studying and collaborating
  • Rooms for individual tutoring of students in reading

Click here to review our curriculum and program requirements. We feel the best way for you to find out if our program is the right one for you, is for you and your family to visit the campus. You will visit with our students, see our beautiful learning spaces and visit with a faculty member about your major. Click here to schedule your campus visit.

Optional Concentrations
