|The Inclusive Early Childhood Education major is consistent with the University's liberal arts focus. In addition, the program is designed to provide students with a foundation of knowledge about child development for children from birth through age 8 years. Knowledge about atypical development and strategies to include children with developmental challenges are major components of this course of study. Students are prepared to become effective, professional teachers who value the collaborative relationships among schools, teachers, therapists in a variety of disciplines, and families.
