Early Childhood Education
The Early Childhood Education degree program prepares students to work with children from birth to age 6 as teachers, administrators, coordinators of parent programs, or in childcare programs on a professional level.
The programs focus on the study of individuals and families from a multidisciplinary perspective. The programs emphasize developmental processes throughout the life cycle; interpersonal relationships; intervention for speech, language, and hearing problems; and educational programming for children and families. The school places great importance on laboratory and field experiences along with classroom experiences.
