You will participate in hands-on learning through four, diverse field experiences
that link educational theory and research learned in the program with daily teaching
practiced in the classroom. Graduates are recommended to the State of Oklahoma for
certification to teach pre-kindergarten through third grade and are prepared for certification
exams in other states.
Earn both an early childhood education bachelor’s and master’s degrees in five years
through our accelerated program.
“Principals are astonished at all of the experiences the Oklahoma State
Early Childhood Education degree program offers to prepare us for teaching. The knowledge
I gained, and the students and teachers I met along the way helped shape me into the
teacher I am today. I am grateful for the amazing professors I had at OSU.”
