Early Childhood Education Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degrees Offered (Majors, Minors)

(with Washington State Teacher Certification)


This minor is intended to prepare the students to become a birth through grade 3 teacher. Students who elect to complete this minor with a teaching endorsement in early childhood education are strongly advised to simultaneously complete the elementary education major (see a department advisor as to how this may be effectively accomplished). Students seeking the teacher certification endorsement in early childhood education must complete Teacher Certification and Professional Education Program requirements and courses (50 credits). Candidates must be fully admitted to the minor prior to beginning the six-quarter cohort sequence. All students in the ECE program must have WSP/FBI background and fingerprint clearance. Please check with the CWU Teacher Certification Office (Black Hall, room 228; 509-963-2660) regarding clearance.

(without Washington State Teacher Certification)


A student may complete this minor without gaining entry to the Teacher Certification Program or completing the Professional Education Program. Under such circumstances a teacher certification endorsement in early childhood will not be granted. This option exists for those individuals who wish to work with young children in an infancy/toddler/preschool setting. Candidates must be fully admitted to the minor prior to beginning the six-quarter cohort sequence. All students in the ECE program must have WSP/FBI background and fingerprint clearance. Please check with the CWU Teacher Certification Office (Black Hall, room 228; 509-963-2660) regarding clearance.

Total Credits: 32
