Early Childhood Education

Degrees Offered: B.A., M.A.T., and M.A.(A non-degree, certification only option also available)

The links below provide resources intended for current and potential early childhood education students. Please note the following:

All Piedmont College initial certification education majors must submit an application for admission to teacher education at the time that they declare their intention to pursue their major. New students apply upon admission to the college, newly declared education majors apply upon declaration of their education major, and existing education majors must apply now if they have not already done so. The application, background check, and professional membership are all required before students can enroll in their first education course. Additional requirements for full admission may be met once candidates have begun their programs.
