MEd in Early Childhood Education
The Department of Early Childhood and Reading offers an online graduate program enabling students to obtain a Master of Education in Early Childhood Education. Curriculum Option 1 is for students who are currently certified in Early Childhood Education, and want the MEd in degree. Curriculum Option 2 is for students who are certified in Elementary Education and desire certification in Early Childhood Education (Pre-K-3)*.
The online Master’s program in Early Childhood Education is designed to be completed by students in less than two years of part-time study. Students may enroll in one course per semester if they desire and may also begin the program in the summer or spring, although the sequence of course offerings is optimal with a fall start. A one-week summer residency is completed during the first summer of the program.
