This major provides students with principles, practices, and competencies related to teaching California’s K-12 youth. Students are immersed in practices inclusive of all children; including children who are culturally and linguistically diverse and children with special needs. Students will gain practical fieldwork experience working with and/or observing children at their site placements within Elk Grove Unified School District.

This major is especially designed for students who plan to transfer into California State University, Sacramento's Teacher Preparation Program, providing the lower division coursework necessary to gain admission to the university and the Elementary Teacher Credential Program. Students planning to transfer in this major should consult with a counselor as requirements vary among transfer universities.
