Early Childhood Education

Bachelor of Science

Ferris State University

If you like to be around children, a career in early childhood education can be a labor of love. In the Early Childhood Education program at Ferris State University, students study important topics such as early childhood development, nutrition, advocacy, curriculum development, program management, and much more. Students also receive a broad educational background by completing general education courses in English, mathematics, humanities, and social science. Included in the program is the opportunity to observe and work with infants, toddlers, and preschoolers, applying theories and techniques taught in the classroom.

Graduates of the Early Childhood Education major find positions in Head Start programs, day care centers or family day care homes, elementary schools, hospitals, recreation centers, or other child-oriented businesses. Job opportunities for students with an Early Childhood Education degree are increasing as parents rely more and more upon childcare outside the home. Other graduates use their training in child development to supplement studies in nursing, dental hygiene, optometry, education, small business management, and other business programs.
