Early Childhood Education Graduate Programs
Graduate programs in early childhood education could offer students training in pedagogy relevant to young children. “Early childhood” is loosely defined, generally referring to children under the age of eight. Graduate programs in early childhood education focus study on teaching methods appropriate for this age group. Students could learn to address the specific educational and social needs of young children. Depending upon the school, the master’s degree conferred may be a M.A., an M.S., or an M.Ed. A Ph.D. in early childhood education is also available at many schools. A graduate degree in early childhood education may prepare students to pursue careers in teaching and administrative positions in child care or preschool settings, elementary schools, early intervention special education programs, and colleges.
