About

The Education of Young Children (EYC) program at University of North Carolina Wilmington offers a Bachelor of Arts degree leading to Birth through Kindergarten (B-K) teacher licensure in North Carolina, as well as courses for individuals who wish to add Birth-Kindergarten or Preschool Add-on licensure to an existing degree or license.

Overview

The Education of Young Children (EYC) program at University of North Carolina Wilmington has made special efforts to provide access to teacher education for a very diverse paraprofessional and practicing teacher population. We have scheduled most of our courses in the late afternoon or evening. Class sizes are typically small, which enhances sense of community within the program.

The EYC faculty members bring with them diverse experience in early childhood education. Interaction with faculty, who are involved in numerous research projects in child development and early childhood education, helps the EYC students acquire a broad knowledge in early care and education of young children.

Career

The Education of Young Children Bachelor of Arts degree program is designed for people who will assume leadership roles as teachers, consultants, and directors of early childhood education programs in public and private schools. The program utilizes an interdisciplinary approach with a curriculum derived from psychology-child development, sociology and social work, nursing, special education and early childhood education.
