Undergraduate Minor: Early Childhood Education for Diverse Learners
Early childhood educators must be prepared to teach an increasingly diverse population of young children. More children from immigrant households are enrolled in early childhood programs than ever before, and the trend is expected to continue into the next decade.
This 15-credit minor provides undergraduate students with background knowledge in Early Childhood Education for Diverse Learners. Completing this minor partially fulfills requirements for licensure in Early Childhood Education, PK-3 and Early Childhood Special Education in Virginia. Eight credits of course work must be unique to the minor.
The minor program requires five 3-credit courses for a total of 15 credits. The required form, Change/ Declaration of Academic Program must be signed by your adviser. For more information call 703-993-2080 or e-mail askCEHD@gmu.edu..
