About the Major

Prospective early childhood teachers also pursue in-depth study of a particular field of knowledge and inquiry. Such study complements the knowledge acquired in the general education liberal arts component by providing the early childhood teachers with specialized understanding of one discipline. This will allow them to perceive how a particular body of knowledge is organized and conceptualized as well as corrected and expanded.
