Early Childhood Education, Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification

Post-Baccalaureate: A route to certification for future educators with a Bachelor's degree

The Post Baccalaureate in Early Childhood is for future educators who currently have a bachelor’s degree.  This is a 44.5-credit (non-degree seeking) program.  This program prepares students for the State of Connecticut #013 Early Childhood certification which allows one to teach regular education, pre-k through grade three and special education, pre-k and kindergarten.  There are opportunities throughout the program for students to get real-world experience through field placement observations. The culminating experience is a semester-long student teaching placement split between a pre-k or kindergarten setting and a setting in grades one through three.
