Requirements for the B.S. Degree (BEE): In addition to the courses listed below, students must complete Preliminary Requirements for Students entering Teacher Education Programs.

Elementary Education with ESOL Endorsement

The College of Education offers a full ESOL Endorsement for all Elementary Education major graduates. The special requirements for ESOL endorsement through infusion are as follows: Successful completion of (1) ESOL 1, 2, and 3, with a minimum grade of 70% or better on all three sections of the ESOL Comprehensive Exam administered in the three ESOL courses; (2) a 20-hour early ESOL field experience in ESOL 1; (3) a late ESOL field experience where students plan, implement, and evaluate lessons for one or more ESOL students over a series weeks; and (4) an ESOL folder, containing all assignments and test results from ESOL 1, 2, and 3, and all ESOL performance check-off sheets from other ESOL-infused courses that a student has taken.

Prerequisites (State Mandated Common Prerequisites): These prerequisites must be met by transfer students as well as USF students. A grade of C- is the minimum acceptable grade.

*Only courses with the prefixes MGF, MTG, MAC, and STA will qualify for the courses in mathematics. MGF 1106 Liberal Arts Mathematics I meets the intent of the program approval rule with respect to the inclusion of geometry in the mathematics requirement.

Students are advised that the Elementary Education specialization will require an enrollment of more than the traditional four semesters of the junior and senior years in order to complete the program specialization courses and the required sequence of internship.

The order in which these courses are to be taken is designated in the program of study.
