Bachelor of Arts in Multidisciplinary Studies: Early Education and Care

The Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education and Care prepares students to move up the career ladder in early education and care, as their course work develops the competencies defined by the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care (EEC). In addition, the course work addresses issues of social justice and inclusion of all children, focusing on special needs, diversity and English language learners. Electives enable students to tailor their studies to their particular career goals within the field.

Students can meet the academic requirements for EEC certification as an Infant-Toddler or Pre-School Teacher, a Lead Teacher, or Director. Additional work and field experience requirements are spelled out in the EEC Certification Packet available at the EEC website.
