Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education


Program Overview

The early childhood major prepares students to teach children three years old through third grade. In addition to being qualified to teach in primary grades, graduates can also teach in preprimary programs, such as public preschools, private pre-kindergarten schools, childcare centers and Head Start programs.


Students must meet the criteria for selective admission to and retention in teacher education. Enrollment in the program is limited to promote quality instruction, appropriate field placement, and effective advising. Not all students who apply and meet the minimum criteria will be accepted.


Teacher Education

The Department of Teacher Education provides a wide range of programs to support the interests of prospective and practicing P-12 teachers at the undergraduate level. The department offers the opportunity for students admitted to professional education to pursue undergraduate courses leading to teacher licensure in the state of Ohio.
