Minnesota needs great teachers! Become a licensed K-6 teacher with our convenient and innovative bachelor’s degree program.

We call our state-wide Elementary Education BS program “DLiTE”, which stands for Distributed Learning in Teacher Education. DLiTE is an online*, cohort-based elementary education teacher licensure program, spanning six semesters. Those who complete the program will earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Elementary Education. A cohort is made up of 35 students or fewer, who start in the same semester.

* This program is not 100% online. All required coursework in the program core is online, and students in each cohort meet in-person near Minneapolis three times each academic year for collaboration, live discussion, testing and camaraderie. These meetings are a mandatory component of the program. Additionally, certain courses in the elective middle-level endorsement areas may not be offered online regularly.
