Program Overview

The CSAT major combines with one of two majors in the College of Education; it leads to certification in elementary education with one of the following specialized endorsement areas: special education, Spanish (paired with the Spanish elementary education minor), English as a Second Language (ESL) (with the Applied Linguistics-ESL minor), or early childhood (with the Early Childhood Education minor). A Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) or Bachelor of Science (B.S.) may be earned. For certification, the student must:

  • Complete both the CSAT major, the education major, and the complementary minor (if required) with a GPA of 2.7 or better
  • Have an overall GPA of 2.7 or better
  • Pass the MTTC Elementary Education and endorsement-area tests

Why Study Csat At Grand Valley?

  • Courses are designed specifically for the major and are taught using best practices identified in research literature.
  • The strong pedagogical skills CSAT students develop are valuable in settings outside the school system, where an understanding of effective teaching and learning is important.
  • Two of the endorsement areas within the special education major could lead to a master's degree.
  • Students have many extracurricular opportunities, such as professional organizations (Student Council for Exceptional Children), service learning in area schools, and becoming active members of the community.
  • Elementary education teachers with a Spanish endorsement or an ESL endorsement are in-demand locally and across the country.
