Elementary Extension Program

Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Elementary Education - Online Extension Program

The Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in Elementary Education Extension Program is designed for students that are entering their junior year. Successful completion of the program will lead to NC Elementary Education certification (K-6) and prepare students to teach as elementary classroom teachers. In our program, we offer all of our courses online with the exception of the field hours which include classroom visits, tutoring, and then extensive field experiences in the elementary classroom.

Please see the recommended course sequence: Recommended Course Sequence

We encourage our students to work with schools in our Professional Development Schools (PDS) system so please check the link to determine if we have a school district that is close to where you live: http://www.uncw.edu/ed/pds/

We also work with a few specific affiliated districts outside of our PDS. Please our entire partnership map here: Map of Field Experience Counties
