The Oklahoma State University College of Education and Human Sciences is now accepting applications for a new, fully-online Bachelor of Science in elementary education.

The degree offers preparation to teach all subjects for grades 1-8, including mathematics, science, reading/language arts and social studies.

Introduced in 2021, the online option provides convenience and flexibility with course completion, while still offering a high-quality academic experience, as well as learning from expert faculty who are well-connected with schools.

“Our traditional on-campus Bachelor of Science in elementary education continues to be successful. Graduates are highly sought after by school districts and go on to work in a variety of educational settings,” said Shelbie Witte, head of the School of Teaching, Learning and Educational Sciences.

Building from the strength of the traditional bachelor’s degree, faculty saw the need to develop a degree program tailored for non-traditional students. The online option provides for balancing work schedules, family obligations or other unique life circumstances.

True to OSU’s land-grant mission, the degree provides another opportunity for individuals whose career goals are to make a difference in their communities as educators. Upon completion of the degree, graduates are recommended to the Oklahoma State Department of Education for full teacher certification and are prepared to take certification exams in other states.
