Graduate Endorsement: Early Childhood
By pursuing your Early Childhood Education endorsement through Monmouth University’s 24-credit program, you’ll benefit from a nationally recognized and accredited program designed to give you the expertise you need to assess and teach children in preschool through third grade. Monmouth’s Early Childhood Education graduate endorsement is for certified teachers who have a standard teaching endorsement in another teaching area or who hold a New Jersey Certificate of Eligibility (CE) Preschool through Grade 3 (P-3).
After completing the 24-credit P-3 endorsement, a student can add two classes, or 6 credits, to fulfill the MEd degree requirement. Those classes are: EDL 536 – Curriculum Development and Design; and ED 626 – Assessment Practice Now and When.
