Early childhood education (Pre-K to grade 3)
Students earn a license to teach in preschool through grade 3 by completing an early childhood education major. This license prepares you to teach both typically developing children as well as children with mild-moderate disabilities and provides particular focus on teaching reading to young children.
Students may add endorsements for pre-kindergarten special needs or early childhood generalist. Completing the early childhood generalist endorsement with the early childhood major prepares students to teach Pre-K to grade 5. The intervention specialist (K-12) major may be completed with the early childhood major in four years.
