For teachers and other professionals interested in pursuing graduate studies and specializing in early childhood education.
- Master in Education, major in Early Childhood Education (Non-thesis)
- Master of Arts in Education, major in Early Childhood Education (Thesis)
The program seeks to form early childhood educators and specialists (preschool and primary school teachers and administrators, child development consultants, and researchers) who can effectively blend theory and practice in creating positive learning opportunities and experiences for young children to promote their total development. The MAE-ECE curriculum thus intertwines four areas of learning: foundational subjects, psychology, specialization subjects, and research.
The program leads to a degree of Master of Arts in Education Major in Early Childhood Education (MAE-ECE) for thesis track and Master in Education Major in Early Childhood Education (formerly Child Development and Education) for non-thesis track. Participants can complete the program in two years without having to give up or be released from their jobs. They must earn 39 units (33 units of coursework and 6 units of action research or thesis writing) to be eligible for graduation.
These are the esteemed faculty to form the group of mentors who would handle the Master of Arts in Education, major in Early Childhood Education (formerly Child Development and Education) program.
