The online Master of Education in Early Childhood Education program meets licensure requirements for national and state early childhood education for PreK-3, preparing current teachers and other human service professionals to prepare them for emerging needs in the workforce. This program is for professionals without backgrounds in early childhood but who are interested in establishing careers in the field.
