Current Student - Guides + Forms
Your advisor will use this form to plan your semesters. You can use this to plan ahead or to do "what if" analysis. If you change your LRP, please consult your advisor.
This is the instruction sheet for completing your Block 1 application.
If you are pursuing your bachelor's in education from Emporia State - be it in elementary or secondary - you need the information available from this source.
Student Teaching Abroad Opportunities
You can do four weeks of student teaching abroad in Denmark, Finland, Germany, Indonesia, or Paraguay to customize your student teaching experience.
As an elementary teacher, you will teach every subject so you must have a knowledge base in general areas. Therefore, our program is very specific in the general education courses you must take.
To help ensure a smooth transition, please refer to the ESU transfer guides, where you can see transfer guides from Kansas community colleges and universities.
