Why Study Early Childhood Education?
Providing high-quality early learning and development experiences are critically important to create the foundation for children's physical/social/emotional well- being and intellectual growth. Working with children, from birth to age 8, provides an opportunity to not only encourage and support young children's learning, but also to ensure the future of our communities. The careers available with a Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education offer many opportunities that are rewarding.
What will I study?
BAE-Early Childhood Education
The Early Childhood Education (ECE) program consists of an academic major in ECE and a sequence of professional certification courses that lead to a P-3 (PreK-third grade) teacher licensure . Completion of the P-3 program or elementary education will enable candidates to work in Head Start , ECEAP, blended preschools, kindergartens, and primary grades in the public schools. The course work offers a combination of theory, methods, and field experiences in a variety of early childhood education settings.
Early Childhood Education Majors
Upon admission to the Early Childhood Education program students are required to declare a major (ECE) and an approved minor. The major leads to an ECE endorsement which enhances a teaching career working with young children.
