VCSU Elementary Education Classes at NDSU
The Elementary Education program at NDSU is available through the cooperation of Valley City State University, the degree-granting institution for this program. This degree program must be completed concurrently with a Child Development and Family Science major from NDSU or another major upon approval. The CDFS degree complements and strengthens the Elementary Education curriculum and helps future teachers understand development and its diversity, making them more effective teachers and helping them work with children from a wide variety of backgrounds.
Upon completion of the Dual Degree Program, the graduate will have earned a Bachelor of Science degree from the College of Human Development and Education with a major in Child Development and Family Science from NDSU and a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education from Valley City State University. Graduates are certified to teach Elementary Education in public schools and may, with additional course work and an additional student teaching experience, be certified to teach kindergarten as well. The dual program is designed to be completed in four years.
