B.A. in Elementary Education

 

In addition to the elementary education major, students earn a minor in another discipline, and complete the New Hampshire State Department of Education Professional Standards for Teachers, which are required for certification. The program culminates with a 16-week student teaching assignment at a local school, which is coordinated by Rivier’s Education Department staff. 

Rivier’s education degrees prepare graduates for the “classroom of the future.” With assistance from several federal grants—including Project New Teachers—the University has become a statewide leader in preparing teachers to integrate technology into their classrooms.

Rivier University is a College of Distinction.
