B.S. Educational Studies - Elementary Education

For those interested in working in a non-classroom setting, the educational studies major offers students the option of a non-certification concentration.  A student completes a six credit hour internship that provides exposure to an alternative educational setting such as the YMCA, Maine Discovery Museum, or non-profit organizations.  This concentration is uniquely designed to parallel the certification program. If the student were to pursue certification, all required coursework, with the exception of student teaching would be completed.
