The undergraduate program in early childhood education works closely with The Office of Student Services (prior to admission to the program) and the Office of Clinical Experiences (to facilitate field experiences and student teaching).
Graduate programs in early childhood education (M.Ed/M.A.) are based on transcript evaluation and individually developed to meet student's continuing educational requirements. An off campus Master's cohort is available. The following prospectuses are used to guide individual faculty advisors and students. Advisor's are assigned after admissions into the ECED M.Ed. program.
The Doctorate in Curriculum and Instruction (C& I) currently offers a concentration in Early Childhood Education. An early childhood emphasis within the doctoral program allows graduate students to pursue a primary emphasis in curriculum and instruction and an individual focus in early childhood education. Early childhood core requirements emphasize constructivist teaching, social action, policy building and teacher as researcher.
Ph.D. Graduate admissions is required.
