Early Childhood Education Major

Early Childhood Education (New York City & Westchester): This program is for students interested in teaching young children in day care centers, preschools, and public schools (birth - grade 2). Early Childhood Education majors also complete a 30-credit concentration in Pace's Dyson College of Arts and Sciences in Biology, English, History, or Mathematics on either campus. Candidates who are interested in a concentration in Spanish can do so on the New York campus only. Candidates will be involved in a rich variety of clinical field experiences throughout the program which culminates in a five-day student teaching internship during the spring semester of senior year. This course of study results in a Bachelor's of Science in Early Childhood Education and, upon completion of certification exams, will result in a single certification to teach young children, birth through grades 2, in New York State.
