Degree offered: Bachelor of Science in Education
Licensure offered: Early Childhood Education
Endorsement offered: Early Childhood Generalist
The Early Childhood Teacher Education Program prepares the teacher education candidate for an Ohio teaching license in early childhood teaching for pre-kindergarten through grade three. Studies include the general education core requirements and a wide range of professional education courses. In addition, students are provided opportunities to participate in extensive field-based experiences in diverse early childhood settings prior to student teaching. It is the nature of this program to integrate theory, practice and educational technology as the candidate is gradually inducted into the early childhood profession. The program models guidelines of the Ohio Department of Education, the National Association for the Education of Young Children and the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education. Candidates may take additional coursework to pursue an early childhood generalist endorsement to add grades 4 and 5 to their licenses. Coursework is also available for a P-12 reading endorsement.
