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.

"The scholarship opportunities at UNK were most important to me. I knew it was an affordable university with all the resources I could possibly need. The professors challenge their students while giving them the tools they need to succeed. I felt that my instructors prepared me for any obstacles I might face in my career. The professors at UNK truly want their students to find a successful career in their field, and I definitely felt that support in the College of Education."
