Overview

Early Childhood Education from Saint Joseph's University encompasses pre-kindergarten through fourth grade. At Saint Joseph's, education is approached as a vocation rather than a career. 

Learning outcomes

Aspiring teachers not only learn how to manage a classroom and effectively teach, but also how their roles as educators make a difference in their communities. In-class coursework is combined with field experiences in local classrooms from the first year of study through the fourth, and graduates move forward with a strong background of hands-on experience.
