UNK students observing a teacher

Elementary Education Teaching Field Endorsement/B.A. in Ed.

The Elementary Education program at the University of Nebraska at Kearney is a premier undergraduate program that will prepare students to work with children through their elementary school years. UNK's Elementary Education students get to interact in classrooms early and often. UNK's close partnership with Kearney and area schools gives students numerous opportunities to interact in both early field experiences and student-teaching. UNK knows the value of hands-on learning and guides students in these field experiences and throughout their collegiate career to develop quality educators who make a difference in the lives of students. 

"I knew that if I went to UNK I wouldn't get lost in the system. I would still be able to stand out and not be in a bigger school and just kind of blend in. I am very fortunate for my experience at UNK. I had wonderful professors that guided me, advisors that guided me, and they were also great models of what teaching should be."
