The Education, Development, Teaching, and Learning Department offers four programs in Early Childhood Education - including two majors and two minors.
As a major, ECE also requires a minor OR a second major.
For all double majors, completion of EDEC 492 and EDEC 493 (minimum of 12 credits) is expected before student teaching.
In addition, students must:
A student may complete this major without gaining entry into the Teacher Certification Programs or completing the Professional Education Program. Under such circumstances a teacher certification endorsement in Early Childhood will not be granted. This option exists for those individuals who wish to work with young children in birth-age 8 settings that do not require teacher certification. All intended Early Childhood Education majors should discuss their options with an advisor prior to selecting a major.
While application to the Teacher Certification Program is not required, students enrolling in any Early Childhood Education Program class that has an embedded field experience must have current WSP/FBI fingerprint and background clearance. Please check with Teacher Certification (Black Hall, Room 228; 509-963-2661, email@example.com) regarding clearance.
