Program Overview

University of Hawaii offers a Bachelor of Education degree in Elementary Education program for students who are interested in developing their credentials and skills as educators of elementary age children. The program will give students an opportunity to learn about their roles as developers of children through education and how children grow and develop through schools. Students will study elementary math and science, as well as language arts and reading, and other foundational educational topics that are the subject of focus in elementary education.

The program consists of a curriculum where students may develop their understanding of the needs of elementary age teaching and creating an effective learning environment. Classes include Math for Elementary School Teachers, Health and Drugs in Society, and Health Education in the Elementary School, although there are many more courses in which students will participate.

Those who successfully complete this program should be able to treat students equitably, recognizing the individual differences that distinguish one student from another and adjusting their practice based on observation and knowledge of their students’ interests, abilities, skills, knowledge, family circumstances, and peer relationships. Graduates should also be able to create multiple paths to the subjects they teach, through their knowledge of how the subject is created, organized, linked to other disciplines, and applied to real-world settings, and to draw on knowledge of human development, subject matter and instruction, and understanding of students to make principled judgments about sound practice.

    School Overview

    The University of Hawai’i System first opened as a land grant institution called the College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts in Honolulu in 1907. By 1920, the school gained university status, changing its name to the University of Hawai’i. By the 1930s, UH began expanding its physical campus by adding other schools and awarding its first doctorate degree. World War II and the attack on Pearl Harbor halted growth for a short period. However, expansion resumed in the 1950s, as the university introduced the Hilo Branch and the Asian Theater program. Throughout the twentieth century, campuses were established on the various islands, and academic programs continued to develop. The main campus in Manoa is the largest and oldest of the college campuses and is a land grant, sea grant, and space grant research facility. 

    More than 600 degree programs are offered through the University of Hawai’i, including bachelor’s, master’s, doctoral, and graduate and professional certificates. Distance learning degrees extend from certificate and bachelor’s degrees to online master’s and doctorate programs.
