Address the educational, social and developmental needs of young children by teaching
pre-kindergarten through third grade in public or private schools and community programs.
Why early childhood education at OSU?
We integrate teaching techniques that will help you improve the intellectual and emotional
development of children. You will participate in hands-on learning through field experiences
that link educational theory and research with daily practice. Upon degree completion,
graduates are recommended to the Oklahoma State Department of Education for full teacher
certification and are prepared to take certification exams in other states, if applicable.
The high-quality reputation of our program makes graduates highly sought after for
teaching positions in Oklahoma and beyond.
