Elementary Education (BA)


Go lead the class

A BA in elementary education from SNHU prepares you to teach kindergarten through eighth-grade students in New Hampshire and many other states. You’ll feel confident that you will enter the classroom with the knowledge, leadership skills and experience to make a difference in the lives of students.

Program Highlights

  • You can specialize in a content area, such as English, math, or special education.
  • Certification in grades K-8 allows for a wide range of career opportunities
  • Gain a specialization with a minor in another academic discipline. 
  • You won't have to wait until after graduation to put education theory into practice - SNHU students work in real classrooms beginning first semester, freshman year.

The outlook for education jobs in the years ahead looks promising for graduates; many veteran teachers approaching retirement will drive demand for new teachers over the next decade.
