To apply, please submit the following materials to the Office of Graduate Admission:
Elementary Education teachers need to have an understanding of the subjects taught in classrooms at the Elementary level. DePaul’s program requires that students in the Elementary program have a minimum of one college-level course in each of the following areas:
These courses may be taken at the undergraduate level and may have been included in the student’s bachelor’s degree program. Elementary Education students will be evaluated by an academic advisor after admission to determine if additional coursework is needed. Completion of content area requirements are not prerequisites for admission, however coursework must be completed before student teaching. It is strongly encouraged that applicants meet with an advisor after admission and prior to taking content courses.
*DePaul alumni that have taken LSP 120 or ISP 120 can receive credit towards the math requirement.
