With unmatched clinical experiences, graduates have the opportunity to practice their knowledge and skills directly with pre-K-3 classrooms, toddlers, infants and preschoolers.
The nationally renowned faculty focuses on early childhood education, teaching children both with and without disabilities. The course of study demonstrates assessment and instructional practices based on research along with child development. Participants complete student teaching and internship opportunities while enrolled that they can apply as learned skills. The senior year residency apprenticeship pairs students with a mentor to help them immediately see results as they impact children.
Graduates receive a teaching certificate recommendation and can either go on to take the appropriate exams to teach in public schools or further their education. Many graduates receive job offers in their senior year based on the work completed during the apprenticeship.
