The degree of Bachelor of Science in Education is conferred upon those who complete the teacher-preparation programs of study.

Students pursuing elementary education are required to complete one content minor specifically designed for elementary education (K-8) or an additional endorsement.

Students pursuing secondary education must also complete one subject or field endorsement plus the corresponding special methods course.

Students planning on teaching in other states should seek assistance from their advisor or the Certification Officer to ensure fulfillment of the teaching certification requirements for those other states.

Other Programs

Pre-Professional

Students may pursue a pre-professional program, such as pre-law, pre-engineering, or pre-nursing, at Chadron State College before transferring to a professional school. Pre-professional programs last from one to four years depending upon the profession, professional schools, and the student’s specific academic and extra-curricular interests. Each professional school specifies the courses a student must complete before seeking admission into that school. Therefore, each student’s program of study must be specifically designed to satisfy the admissions requirements of the professional schools into which the student wishes to seek admission as well as his/her own educational needs. Students interested in pre-professional programs should contact the appropriate academic School Dean.

Teacher Certification Endorsement

Information concerning the specific requirements for the various teaching certificates in Nebraska may be secured from the office of the Certification Officer in the Department of Education.

Academic Certification of Study

An Academic Certificate of Study is provided to students who complete a coherent and defined coursework plan. These recognized knowledge clusters have been developed to assist the student in enhancing knowledge and proficiency, career success, employment opportunities, and personal development.
