Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Studies
Are you fascinated by the learning, playing, and developing minds of young children and have a passion to make a positive impact? Then the Bachelor of Arts Degree in Early Childhood Studies is for you!
The Bachelor of Arts Degree in Early Childhood Studies (ECS) prepares CI students to work effectively with young children from birth through eight years of age and their families. Our program develops the knowledge and skills necessary to work with the youngest community members, including the embedding of substantive training in language acquisition and literacy for early childhood Dual Language Learners across the program. In completing the major, ECS students acquire the competencies to serve both typically and atypically developing young children within the natural settings of home, community, and schools.
The academic program offers core curricula and fieldwork in early childhood development and pedagogy while highlighting family engagement in the context of family, culture, language, and society.
Upon completion of the BA in Early Childhood Studies, graduates are eligible for the Child Development Teacher Permit issued by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing (CTC).
