In the Interdisciplinary Early Childhood Education (IECE) program you will gain insight into the cognitive, physical, social and emotional development of children from birth through age five. You will learn about child growth and development, health, safety, curriculum planning, assessment and family involvement.
Once you graduate, some of the employment opportunities available will be in public and private preschools, early childcare educational settings, Head Start programs, early intervention programs and corporate-sponsored child care facilities.
