The Early Childhood Education major is designed for students who wish to teach young children, with and without disabilities, from birth through age eight. This program leads to licensure in Early Childhood Special Education and Birth - Grade Three. There is no minor required for this major. Students enter the ECE program as a cohort group during the Spring term. Students interested in this program should apply for admission to Professional Education one term earlier than for other College of Education programs, for the fall term. Students will be admitted to the ECE program once a year.
