Would you like to become an elementary school teacher?

Midway University’s Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education program can train you to work with young learners in elementary schools across the state.

Upon graduation, you will meet the requirements for certification to teach kindergarten through fifth grade in Kentucky. Through reciprocal agreements, students should be able to achieve certification in some other states as well.
