The Department of Elementary Education was created in 1972 as part of a division of the earlier Department of Education in the College of Education.

Courses included subject-based teaching methods, special topics, children's literature, and practicums. The department was administered by a chair, under the direction of the college dean. Chairs included Max J. Berryessa (1972-1974), Floyd Sucher (1974-1977), James E. Baird (1978-1987), James W. Dunn (1987-1991), Paul M. Hollingsworth (1991-1993), and D. Ray Reutzel (1993-1997).
