*there is only one-course difference between the Early Childhood Program and the Elementary Education Program therefore most of our candidates
in these areas opt to do the K-5 licensure, take the one course and then add-on the Early Childhood license, making them PK-5 teachers.

Belmont education candidates ALL have a content major alongside their teacher education coursework leading to licensure. This unique option allows candidates to have in-depth knowledge in the content that they will teach and also engage the greater Belmont scholarship that is taking place within majors across campus. This unique approach also ensures that every teacher education candidate will have two advisors, one in their content major and one in education.
