The Department of Early Childhood Education in the Clemmer College of Education offers an interdisciplinary undergraduate program leading to the Bachelor of Science degree in early childhood development. The licensure program is designed to provide academic preparation in the growth and development of young children (0-8), their families, and environmental factors influencing their development and leads to PreK-3 teaching license. The  Early Care and Education program prepares candidates to work in the field of early childhood education not requiring a license (e.g., childcare, community settings/agencies.) In addition, the early childhood education program offers a minor in early childhood education and opportunity for adding an early childhood endorsement (PreK-3) to existing education licenses.

In addition, a Ph.D. in early childhood education is offered beyond the master’s degree.  Also available are two online graduate programs, a Master’s Certificate in Emergent Inquiry and M.A. degree, Master Teacher. Further information on this program may be obtained from the School of Graduate Studies.  www.etsu.edu/gradstud/Home.aspx
