The Department of Human Development and Learning 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. The non-licensure 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 to existing education licenses.

Graduate Study – The Department of Human Development and Learning offers a graduate program leading to a master’s degree in early childhood education. In addition, a Ph.D. in early childhood education is offered beyond the master’s degree. Further information on this program may be obtained from the School of Graduate Studies.
