About the Program

If you have thought about working with young children, young children with special needs or even directing educational child care programs, then the early childhood education and exceptional needs major is for you.

ECEEN students develop skills for working with typically developing children as well as children with exceptional needs and their families. Students are prepared to work with children from birth through 3rd grade.

Students complete a program that prepares them to apply for teacher licensure in Indiana as Early Childhood Generalist and Exceptional Needs through grade 3. Through their degree and licensure program, students are prepared to work in early intervention programs, pre-kindergarten classrooms in schools and community programs, and early childhood regular and special education classrooms in public or private schools, kindergarten through 3rd grade.

Students receive hands-on experience at the Ben and Maxine Miller Child Development Laboratory School, in community schools and other early childhood programs as well as completing a semester as a student teacher in an early childhood program in a child development center, public or private school.
