Coming fall 2022:

BS in Elementary Education

North Hennepin Community College and St. Cloud State University are excited to offer a BS in Elementary Education to NHCC graduates! 

A little about SCSU's program: The co-teaching model used by universities and colleges throughout the country started at St. Cloud State University! Created to give those pursuing a career in education a hands-on, real-world experience, the SCSU co-teaching model flips the traditional student teaching model on its head by partnering with school districts committed to working one-on-one with teacher candidates from St. Cloud State and actively integrates these students into planning curriculum, teaching in the classroom setting and mentoring and assessing students — just as they will do in their careers as lead teachers. Additionally, they provide guidance and mentorship along the way, giving teacher candidates the confidence to pursue their careers in education after graduation.

  • 1,421 student field-experience placements in the College of Education and Learning and Design
  • BS in Elementary Education at SCSU leads to a Minnesota Teaching Licensure for kindergarten through sixth grade classrooms
  • Students entering the Elementary Education program are provided with an iPad bundle to use as a teaching and learning tool throughout the program. As the use of mobile devices in K-12 schools has become the standard, our students learn strategies, skills, and creative ideas to enhance what is taught in classrooms.
