Your career

The undergraduate program prepares you to enter a master’s level licensure program. Options are listed below. You can also prepare to be recommended for both the Early Childhood and the Elementary Education licenses after completing the M.Ed. program in Early Childhood Education. This is a popular option, and your advisor will help you plan your coursework.

Or you can pursue work that does not require a license, such as working in preschools, social service agencies, and nonprofit organizations.
