Elementary Education - Graduate

The Curriculum and Instruction: Elementary Education program prepares teachers to excel in classrooms and other educational settings. As you progress through the program, you will gain additional experience and knowledge to meet any challenge in elementary classrooms. Additionally, our specialist and doctoral students go on to produce research that shapes classrooms and policy around the country.

Students choose to pursue an Elementary Education degree at Florida State for several reasons. Our highly accomplished faculty have strong backgrounds in their respective subject areas and value close-working relationships. They want nothing more than to see their students succeed.

Classes are small, so you can easily form friendships and study groups. We offer a small school atmosphere rarely found at a major research university. This provides our students with unique and invaluable classroom experiences.

We offer an online master’s degree as well as on-campus doctoral degrees to individuals who already hold a Professional Educator’s Certificate. Note: If you are seeking a program that will lead to teacher certification in Elementary Education (grades K-6), please see our Elementary Education combined BS/MS pathway.
