What makes an OBU Early Childhood Education degree special?

As a future teacher in early childhood education, students receive pertinent information and practical experiences that are relevant to the current needs of today’s classrooms. Students are supported in their learning within the guidance and nurturing of a Christian environment. Classes are also small in size, which contribute to a more personal working relationship between students and faculty. Through well-designed class and field experiences at OBU, students are very prepared to meet the experiences and challenges offered in the field of education.

What are OBU grads doing with their Early Childhood Education degrees?

There are many opportunities available for students with an early childhood degree. Most students are seeking a teaching position with young children within the public school systems of Oklahoma and Texas. With more preschools being established, students are choosing to enter the field of education in this exciting area. Some seek the areas of Administrator in a Head Start program or Parents as Teacher’s Facilitator. While some graduates pursue to be a Faith Community Coordinator and Educator, others are interested in the area of childcare as a Child Care Center Director/Owner/Coordinator.
