Summary of the Changes:
This program will prepare educational leaders working in public and private Early Childhood Education programs. The program will include existing Educational Leadership courses and existing Early Childhood Education courses. No new courses are required. The program is a 42 credit hour M.Ed. in Educational Leadership and the program within the degree is Early Childhood Educational Leadership. The program includes 6 credit hours that are COEHS requirements for all master's degrees, 18 credit hours in Educational Leadership (Department of Leadership, School Counseling and Sport Management), 15 credit hours in Early Childhood Education (Department of Childhood Education, Literacy and TESOL) and a 3 credit hour field experience in an Early Childhood Education setting.
The program will be hosted in the Department of Leadership, School Counseling and Sport Management as that department has an existing M.Ed. in Educational Leadership. There are multiple tracks within that degree and the Early Childhood Educational Leadership program will be added to that group of student degree choices. Faculty are from both of the departments above and students with undergraduate degrees in fields acceptable for admission to graduate work in either department will be accepted into the program. Typically those undergraduate degrees are in early childhood education, elementary education and secondary education.
