In the Early Childhood Education Programs you'll develop powerful connections with our faculty-in the classroom, through research projects, and via advisement and mentoring by faculty members. Our programs are comprised of dedicated teachers who are committed to helping you evolve into an outstanding early childhood educator, leader, and/or researcher. If you are an M.A. student, they'll prepare you to teach every child, from newborns to age 8, from an assets-based, culturally relevant perspective. If you are an Ed.D. student, they will support the development of your research pertaining to the education and development of young children (Birth-Grade 2) and related topics.
