The Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Education Program is designed to provide students an understanding of the cognitive, physical, social and emotional development for working with young children. Opportunities to apply this knowledge in practical experiences are incorporated in the curriculum. Curriculum topics include, but are not limited to developmental ages and stages, health and safety, curriculum planning, assessment and family involvement. Employment opportunities are available in public and private preschools, early care educational settings, early intervention programs, Head Start, hospitals, campus child development centers, rehabilitation clinics and recreation centers.
While many of the Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Education courses are offered via distance learning this program is not an on-line degree program. Also, students are required to complete at least a portion of their field experiences outside of their place of employment. Students who are employed in Family Day Care will need to plan to fulfill their practicum hours in a child care center.
