Master of Education in Early Childhood Education
If you are interested in working with young children in public or private schools, childcare centers, or community programs but did not pursue a teaching degree as an undergraduate, then our master's program in early education may be a fit for you.
Unique strengths of our program:
Classes typically meet one evening per week, with a day commitment later in the program as students participate in a pre-kindergarten placement and a second placement in either the birth to age 3 or pre-K to grade 3 setting.
Students may choose several pathways towards their degree, typically pursuing the master's degree in education leading to certification. Others pursue a master's degree in education without certification. Montessori teachers and those currently enrolled in the Montessori Training Center of New England may also complete a master's degree in early education with a Montessori concentration.
