BSEd in Elementary Education

This program has been identified as one that could potentially meet educational requirements for a licensed profession.

The information provided below is a general indication of whether or not our program meets the educational requirements for licensure. MSU cannot provide verification of an individual's ability to meet licensure requirements unrelated to our program requirements. It is important to note that some states require individuals to complete additional requirements unrelated to the educational requirements. Also, there may be multiple licensing options or pathways. Students will need to work closely with Teacher Advisement and Field Placement (TAFP) to determine if our program meets the requirements of your desired license or pathway.

The information is accurate as of the time it was last reviewed. However, licensure requirements can change frequently. Therefore, it is good to regularly speak with TAFP about your plans for licensure and to check with state licensing bodies about specific requirements.
