Program Requirements:

Undergraduate students interested in becoming certified early childhood teachers have the option of applying for the combined BA/MSEd or BS/MSEd. This program allows candidates to obtain a Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Science in Education degree with Type 04 (Early Childhood) certification in approximately five years. Candidates complete a BA or a BS program in a state-approved undergraduate major and begin the graduate program in early childhood education the semester after graduation from the undergraduate program.

As undergraduates, candidates must complete EDUC 200  or be accepted into the undergraduate teacher education program. Candidates must also take ECED 300 , ECED 301 , and ECED 386  as part of their undergraduate program. Candidates apply for the combined BA/MSEd or BS/MSEd program no later than the second semester of their junior year. Once accepted into the combined program, candidates are eligible to take two graduate-level courses in the MSEd early childhood program during their senior year. The remainder of the program is completed following graduation from the undergraduate college.

For more information on this program, contact the director of the graduate and undergraduate early childhood education programs.
