The Early Childhood Education (PreK-Grade 2) major is designed for students who seek licensure in the Early Childhood licensure program (Pre-K-2nd grade). The major is intended to provide knowledge in various content disciplines as well as understanding of developmentally appropriate practices for teaching and learning in grades pre-kindergarten through 2. Students complete practicum experiences all four years in suburban and urban school settings through our partner school district sites. For more information please visit the Education Department home page.

Your program may lead to licensure which is valid in the state of Massachusetts. Licensure may be valid in other states but may require additional steps and cannot be guaranteed. To learn more about other state licensure reciprocity please visit
