The Curriculum and Instruction Department provides several undergraduate teacher licensure programs and a minor in ESL/Bilingual Education.

The Early Childhood Education major is a dual early childhood program that results in Wisconsin teaching licensure in regular and special education for birth through third grade.

The Elementary Education:  Middle Childhood/Early Adolescence major leads to licensure for teaching children ages about 6 to about 12/13 or the elementary and middle grades.  The program includes elementary education major, a minor, and a wide range of Professional Education courses. Special emphasis is placed on fieldwork in schools and developing the skills to work with children who may vary widely in background and educational need. A special methods course in the minor may be required.

Secondary Education prepares students to teach in middle or junior high schools and senior high schools. Academic major(s), minor(s), or broadfield areas are complemented by educational foundations coursework, methods courses, and field work that qualify students for middle/secondary teaching licensure. For Secondary Education majors to be certified in their minor as well as their major, they must have a methods course in the minor unless the major and minor are in a compatible area. A listing of compatible majors and minors is available in the Curriculum and Instruction Office.

The Bachelor of Science with an Elementary/Middle or Secondary Education major with a minor in bilingual-bicultural or ESL education is designed to provide instructional strategies and cultural understanding for undergraduate/graduate students who wish to work with children whose native language is not English.
