Childhood Education

In the Childhood Education Program, you'll have the chance to choose between two concentrations: Early Childhood Education (B-K) or Elementary Education (K-6).

Engage in Growth Mindset Service Learning from Day One

Both concentrations emphasize project-based and other experiential learning strategies. Students engage in and connect their learning in real-time by being embedded in community partnerships in schools and after-school programs from day 1.
