The undergraduate program in early childhood prepares students to work with young children and their families. The curriculum includes an extensive core of liberal education courses that are central to early childhood teaching and child development. The program prepares graduates to work in non-licensure educational settings (including daycare centers or youth community programs), to pursue advanced degrees, or to work in other settings where a strong liberal education base is useful. In addition, the undergraduate degree program prepares students for entry into the master of education (MEd)/initial licensure programs in early childhood education, early childhood special education, or elementary education.
