Welcome to Middle Childhood Education!

We believe in the power of education and the profound difference it can make in the life of a child. Middle-level learners are developing attitudes, values, and dispositions that will impact them as adults. In this program you will learn to guide the growth of these learners so that they become lifelong learners, ethical decision-makers, and self-sufficient individuals! 

Earning a middle childhood education degree will prepare you to teach 4th through 8th grades in two endorsement areas. You will be able to choose from math, science, social studies, or English. With UAFS you'll have the opportunity to participate in innovative practices such as Teacher Apprenticeship, a paid year-long residency program during your senior year. You will be embedded within classes, spending extended periods in the 4-8 classroom, and have the opportunity to earn a Special Education Endorsement to add to your teaching license.

Our graduates teach in private and public schools across the nation.
