The early childhood teacher must be knowledgeable in a broad range of subjects, including child development, science, math, language and literacy acquisition, creative arts and social studies. Through coursework that includes art, history, literature, math, and government, the Liberal Studies Teacher Licensure major provides the interdisciplinary background needed to meet the requirements of the Early Childhood curriculum. In addition, rigorous Education courses generate the knowledge necessary to succeed as a classroom teacher. Finally, through internships and practicum experiences, participation in the classroom occurs during each year of the Education program. This thorough integration of theory and practice offers future teachers a unique opportunity to apply their academic knowledge to the classroom experience from the start of their college career.
