Our master’s programs in childhood education set the stage for success in the classroom--your own success and that of your student. Our comprehensive coursework, infused with the latest technologies and combined with practical experience in school settings, will set you apart. Complete your degree online, on campus, or with a blend of both.

Nationally recognized by the Association for Childhood Education International, we offer the following degree options:

  • Initial Certification: If you have a bachelor’s degree and are seeking initial teacher certification at the elementary level (grades 1-6), our 45-credit program allows you to participate in supervised school experiences and includes a professional student teaching sequence.
  • Professional Certification: If you are certified and would like to qualify for professional certification in a first subject area and initial certification in childhood education, we have a 36-credit program.
  • Bilingual Extension Option: If you would also like to be able to teach bilingual English learners and culturally and linguistically diverse students, we offer a 9-credit bilingual extension for both the initial and professional certification programs.

Our programs will prepare you to integrate instructional technology in the classroom, plan and select strategies and materials that foster multicultural understanding, and engage children in successful constructivist learning practices. Program content and experiences are aligned with state certification requirements; successful completion of all parts of the program leads to endorsements for certification.

In addition to our degree programs, we offer a 12-credit Certificate in Childhood Education Extension that allows you to extend your certification in elementary or childhood education to the middle school level(grades 7-9) in English, Mathematics, or Science in two part-time semesters.
