Our comprehensive early childhood education program will prepare you to receive dual certification to teach in early childhood (birth-grade 3) and elementary school (grades 1-6). You will receive robust and diverse field experiences beginning as early as your freshman year with opportunities to interact with infants and toddlers, preschoolers, early childhood special education students, and elementary students.
Our professors with real-world teaching experience provide relevant and cutting-edge instruction in early literacy, interdisciplinary learning, language development, and perceptual motor development. A full-time student teaching experience will solidify the valuable skills gained throughout the program.
Integrate your passion with your calling as you impact the next generation.
