Bachelor of Arts in Education - Elementary Education Major

Concentration: Honors in the Major Elementary Education (K-6)  


Summary of the changes:

We are creating an Honors in the Major (HIM) option for elementary education students, especially those who are interested in graduate school or one day becoming teacher-leaders in their schools. This is in response to a request from Hicks Honors College to develop Honors in the Major options for all majors at UNF. Students with a minimum GPA of 3.2 will be able to apply for HIM during the first semester of their junior year. They will complete an action research project during their student teaching internship. This package contains one new course--EDG 3XXX Elementary Field Experience II. This course was created in APC log. # 201808-100. Total credit hours for students completing Honors in the Major remain the same (120 cr.). We would like the first cohort of students to be able to apply for HIM at the end of Fall 2019.
