The Davis & Elkins College Teacher Education Program prepares competent, caring and qualified teachers for schools in Appalachia and in national and global communities.

Students seeking certification in elementary education grades K-6 undertake a major in elementary education, which leads to the awarding of a Bachelor of Arts degree.

A student seeking certification in a content specialization (grades 5-9, and/or 9-adult) must declare a major outside of education with a declared minor in education.
