The Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Education offers several programs designed to meet the needs of graduate students: postbaccalaureate programs and master’s degrees that allow students to apply for initial licensure in elementary education (1-6) or early childhood education (PreK-2); and master’s degree programs that allow students to apply for professional licensure. The department also offers a Master of Education degree in reading for educators seeking an additional license as a teacher specialist (all levels) of reading. In addition, a CAGS in reading is available.
The honors program in elementary education provides highly motivated elementary education majors with opportunities to enhance their academic program through intensive scholarly study and research designed to be of assistance in postgraduate employment or in the pursuit of an advanced degree in elementary education.
