DEPARTMENT: Department of Education

LOCATION: Online

The Early Childhood Education Minor is designed to acquaint the student with developmentally appropriate practices for children from birth to grade 3. The minor prepares students with the professional knowledge, understanding, and skills necessary for planning and teaching curriculum to foster the growth and development of children during the period of early childhood. 

The minor is excellent preparation for students pursuing careers in education (e.g., early childhood, administration, parent education), law (e.g., child and family advocacy), social service (e.g., family casework, child welfare, licensing, child protection, child policy) or in various health-related areas (e.g., pediatrics, nursing, Child Life Specialist) involving children. It is also appropriate for students who are interested in gaining a broader understanding of children and families in contemporary society. 

An early childhood education minor, when paired with an elementary education major, an instruction minor, and student teaching residency leads to licensure in the State of Wisconsin, allowing you to work in early childhood/head start programs, 3K, 4K, preschool classrooms and through grade three elementary school.
