Passion. Knowledge. Purpose.

Early childhood education majors prepare for careers teaching children from birth through grade 2 by studying a variety of topics ranging from language and learning in the classroom to the role of technology in teaching and learning. In addition to the major and liberal education requirements, early childhood education majors select a concentration in either biology, computing and logic, earth science, mathematics, Spanish, American studies, English/language arts, general science or social studies.


Graduate Study

The bachelor’s degree in early childhood education that you earn from Saint Rose will grant you initial certification in this field.
