Eugene Education & Learning Major - Multiple Subjects

The undergraduate program allows a student to complete a bachelor's degree while simultaneously completing the requirements for an early childhood and elementary Oregon Initial Teaching License. Candidates are provided solid foundations in theory and content, as well as maximum exposure to the school environment through practica and student teaching experiences. They are prepared to nurture young peoples' intellectual, social, and moral growth and to appreciate diversity of cultures.

The undergraduate program in Eugene allows students to take classes in the late afternoon and evening. The program begins in the fall each year and takes approximately two years to complete. Candidates entering the program must have or be close to completing the *Associate of Arts Oregon Transfer degree (AAOT). Candidates not pursuing the AAOT should schedule an appointment with an advisor as soon as possible to ensure University Core requirements are met.

Upon completion of Pacific's undergraduate elementary program, candidates will receive a Bachelor of Arts degree from Pacific University with a major in Education and Learning, and have completed the requirements for an Oregon Initial Teaching License. Candidates wishing to teach at the secondary level are encouraged to complete their bachelor's degree in the subject area they wish to teach and then apply to the Master of Arts in Teaching program.
