Beginning with the Class of 2015, the Early Childhood undergraduate major will no longer be offered. Students may add on the Early Childhood license once they have obtained an initial Elementary license.
The Early Childhood Teacher (PreK-2) program is now Early Childhood: Teacher of Students With and Without Disabilities (PreK-2). This program is for those who wish to be licensed to teach PreK-Grade 2 or be licensed by the Office of Childcare Services (formally the Office for Children).
Stage I. Fundamentals of Education in the Inclusive Classroom (Common Core) (8 semester hours)
The following courses are required for all general education and ESL majors:
Students will be evaluated for writing competence at the conclusion of EDUC 156 and must be recommended by the faculty to advance to GEDUC 460. Students will again be evaluated after completion of GEDUC 460. Those students who have not demonstrated strong academic and literacy skills will be offered other options and will work closely with their advisors to find a match for their child-related interests in a non-licensed field.
Stage II. Subject Matter Core (40 semester hours)
Stage III. Licensure Preparation (36 semester hours)
