EDUCARE The Swedish Preschool Model


Course Description

Master of Science with a major in Education

Information

As its name indicates, the Swedish approach to preschool (EDUCARE), integrates educational and care-giving practice to support the learning and development of children between the ages of one and six. The international master’s programme in EDUCARE combines classroom- based instruction with field work in Swedish preschools, family centers and other early childhood education venues. The programme welcomes Swedish and international students. Programme instruction is in English.

Students who complete the programme will have expertise in the pedagogy and policies of EDUCARE. Given Sweden’s standing as a world leader in early childhood education, graduates of the programme will be well positioned for employment as preschool educators, researchers, and leaders, whether they choose to purse their careers internationally or in Sweden. At the same time, students will leave the programme ready to pursue doctoral studies in early childhood education or related fields, as the programme provides a combination of rigorous research and field work, taught by PhD faculty from the Preschool Educationand Research Group at Jönköping University’s School of Education and Communication, as well as through guest lectures by national and international experts in the field.
