Early Childhood Education - Career Paths & Degree Types

If you’re a prospective educator who loves to work with young children, know that you can start down your career path even before you enter college (by volunteering to help at a local school). Your bachelor’s degree from an early childhood education program will kick your career into high gear, exposing you to the coursework and field experiences that will establish your mastery and expertise. You’ll study everything from child development to classroom management and maybe even develop a specialization like special education.
