Elementary Education




Since 1910, The University of Southern Mississippi has served as the flagship for teacher education in our state. Our professors are highly respected as leaders in research and service, and our graduates hold teaching positions across the globe. We are proud and confident because of the foundation they received at Southern Miss.

Students pursuing an undergraduate degree in elementary education may attain an elementary teacher’s license (certification for grades K-6) and will receive a reading endorsement as well as an additional endorsement in English, Social Studies, Foreign Language, Mathematics, or Science.

Our programs are designed to meet licensure programs in the State of Mississippi.  We do not guarantee to meet the licensure requirements of other states.  If you need assistance in verifying that your program of study meets your desired state’s licensure requirements, please contact Jennifer Wild.
