Elementary and Early Childhood Education

Elementary Education (P-5)

Program Description

The EECE undergraduate program is designed to prepare teachers of young children and leads to certification for pre-kindergarten to grade five in Georgia. The program provides candidates with an understanding of developmentally appropriate practices and an awareness of and sensitivity to cultural diversity and individual differences among young learners.

Program Overview

This broad-field program is designed to prepare teachers of young children and leads to certification for pre-kindergarten to grade five in Georgia. The cross-disciplinary nature of the program's course requirements, with special emphasis on content studies in mathematics and reading, corresponds to the broad and integrated nature of teaching in the elementary grades as well as the fundamental importance of developing the reading and mathematical skills of young learners. Successful completion of this program leads to recommendations for P-5 licensure, a Reading Endorsement, and an endorsement to teach English to Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL). 

How do I Apply 
  1. Submit an application to Kennesaw State University online at GACollege411.org. This requires completing the application and submitting with a $40 application fee payable by debit or credit card.
  2. Submit your official SAT or ACT scores sent directly from the testing agency, either Collegeboard or ACT.org.
  3. Submit your official high school transcript. If your school allows you to send them electronically through GACollege411.org, then please use that process. Otherwise, a transcript can be mailed from your high school. Send a current transcript at the time you apply, and be sure to request to have a final transcript to be sent once you have graduated.
  4. Follow the status of your application through the application status check. Please keep in mind that documents can take up to six weeks to be processed.
