Early Childhood Education (Birth-Kindergarten), B.A.


The early childhood education (birth to kindergarten) program leads to the Bachelor of Arts. Candidates may choose from two options to complete this degree: (1) interdisciplinary early childhood education certification track and (2) non-certification track. Students who wish to be certified to teach in Kentucky’s state-funded, public school, pre-kindergarten classrooms (serving 3- to 5-year-olds with and without disabilities) or in Kentucky’s early intervention system, First Steps (serving birth to 3-year-olds with disabilities), should declare a pre-major in IECE certification track. Candidates will become IECE certification track major after successful completion of the Teacher Education Program requirements. Candidates who wish to work in community childcare programs, Head Start, or Early Head Start programs, Kentucky’s Quality Rating System, ALL STARS, or home visitation programs should declare major in the non-certification track.

*Those seeking the non-certification track should consult with an advisor about course requirements.
