Elementary Education Major

Welcome to Augustana’s Elementary Education Program! 

As a transfer student, I felt very welcomed by my professors--not just as a student in the education program, but as a member of the Augie community. Our professors strive to see us succeed in our future classrooms and challenge us to give our future students a meaningful education
