(currently not open to new applicants)
This three-year, part-time program is specifically designed for practicing teachers who are seeking an advanced degree and specialized certificate in the teaching of young children (pre-kindergarten through third grade). Students take one course each fall, one each spring, and two during the summer for a total of 12 credits per year. During years one and two, teachers who are already certified to teach in another educational field (e.g., Elementary Education, Special Education, Art, or Music Education) earn the 24 credits for an Instructional II Certificate in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and add an early childhood endorsement (nursery school through third grade) to their credentials. During year three of the program, students earn the remaining 12 credits required for a 36-semester-hour, non-thesis Master’s in Early Childhood Education. (Not available on the Indiana campus)
Total 36 cr.
