Designed for Flexibility – Online, On-Campus, or Hybrid/Blended Courses.
The M.S. degree with a concentration in Early Childhood Education is designed to promote quality early childhood education for all young children, birth through age twelve, and to improve professional practice in the early childhood community. This non-certification concentration offers coursework in various formats: online, on campus and hybrid/ blended courses.
Our planned program supports a comprehensive understanding of the diverse cognitive, cultural, developmental, and linguistic needs of the early childhood learner. Graduates will be able to work effectively with multicultural populations of young children in a variety of settings and provide instructional opportunities that are adapted to diverse learning styles. In addition, our graduates are trained to use developmentally appropriate practices in early childhood education to create healthy, respectful, nurturing, and challenging learning environments for all young children in their cultural contexts.
