For catalog years 2020 and prior, you can be certified to teach K-5 in all subjects, grades 6-8 in your content major or minors and K-8 in all subjects when teaching in a self-contained classroom.

For catalog years 2021 and beyond, the Elementary Education Curriculum is designed to prepare students to assume teaching responsibilities in two certified Michigan Department of Education Grade Bands: PK-3 and 3-6. A Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Elementary Education completes the course and clinical experience requirements for a Michigan Standard Teaching Certificate in both grade bands. Graduates of this program can be eligible to teach all subjects to PK-6 students in self-contained classrooms.
