WSU Elementary Teaching Degree Completion Classes at the South Campus

Students who meet the prerequisites and want to pursue an elementary education degree can now complete much of the Wichita State University professional education coursework at the WSU South Campus. Courses (see list below) are taught at times and through delivery methods that are convenient to the working adult or stay-at-home parent, with courses typically beginning after 4 p.m. or offered online. Most courses engage students in a field experience (5 -10 hours per week) at an elementary school that must be completed during normal school hours.

This program is perfect for working adults who have limited day-time hours for taking university courses during the day. Transfer students are encouraged to work with a WSU advisor for information regarding program admission.

Students participating in the South Campus Elementary Teaching Degree Completion program:
• Must be admitted into Wichita State University
• Make an appointment with a WSU advisor
• Have a Negative TB test on file
