Master of Education (M. Ed.) in Early Childhood Education
The Master of Education degree is designed for individuals who hold or are eligible for a clear, renewable teaching certificate in an approved field (such as Early Childhood Education) and wish to pursue advanced study in that field. The Master of Education in Early Childhood Education is designed to prepare a master teacher who can address the academic, social and emotional development of students in pre-school through grade five.
The program of study consists of 10 required courses totaling 30 semester hours. There is no internship for this program. Most courses are offered online with two courses being offered face-to-face. Not all courses are offered every semester. (Please check the Class Schedule Listing on the Armstrong Web site to see course information for the upcoming semester.)
Students may add a Reading Endorsement to their renewable certificate by taking the following courses: RDEN7070, RDEN7071, and RDEN7072. Note: RDEN7070 must be taken prior to RDEN7071 or RDEN7072. Following successful completion of these courses, the student must follow the necessary procedures for adding the Reading Endorsement to one’s renewable certificate. Please see your instructor or forms page on our website for instructions.
