Elementary Education

Earn a degree in Elementary Education at the Murray campus or one of our regional campus sites in Henderson, Hopkinsville, Madisonville, and Paducah. If you are currently attending a community college in this region, rest assured that Murray State University has collaborated with our academic partners to provide a smooth transition as you work toward a bachelor's degree. Once you successfully complete the bachelor’s program in Elementary Education, you are eligible for Kentucky teacher certification. 

To become an elementary school teacher, you can obtain a BS or BA degree in elementary education with a four-year program at the Murray main campus. You may also build on a community college degree to earn a BS degree at regional campus sites in Henderson, Hopkinsville, Madisonville, or Paducah.
