Masters in Child Study and Early Education

The Child Study and Early Education concentration is designed to provide students with a broad overview of the educational and developmental needs of young children in early education and care settings and their families. Students may seek to acquire or extend their knowledge and skills in Early Intervention (0 – 3years), Early Childhood Education (0 - 5 years), Family Services, Public Policy for Children and Families, or interdisciplinary work in Childhood Studies. There is a strong emphasis on the study of the child, individually and in groups, and with close attention to the cultural context. The study of the child leads directly to accurate assessment and effective programming. The Child Study and Early Education degree is not a teacher preparation program, however students may design a program that satisfies the course requirements for the Massachusetts Department of Early Education and Care Lead Teacher Credential.
