Offered by Education .

The early-childhood preparation program encompasses three major program components: professional content, field experience and process seminars. Because all program components are integrated, students concurrently enroll in them at each level. Students generally complete the program in four semesters. Because the program is competency based, however, students occasionally proceed through the sequence at different rates.
