 About the EECE Department

 

Undergraduate: The Queens College undergraduate program in elementary education prepares students for the New York State Initial Certificate in Childhood Education, 1–6.
In addition to the EECE coursework that makes up the program, students must also complete either a full co-major in one of the liberal arts and sciences programs, or a minor plus sufficient additional credits selected in consultation with the minor program to arrive at 30 credits in one of the liberal arts and sciences programs.

Graduate: The Department of Elementary & Early Childhood Education (EECE) offers graduate programs leading to New York State certification in Early Childhood Education (birth–grade 2), Childhood Education (grades 1–6), Literacy Education, and Bilingual Education. These programs prepare teachers to support learning and development within the family, culture, and community contexts of students and schools. EECE programs share a commitment to educational practices that honor linguistic and cultural diversity, and integrate technology and instruction to enhance learning.

Important note: To conform to changing NYS regulations and the requirements of various accreditation agencies, EECE graduate programs may undergo revisions that are not necessarily reflected in the Bulletin. Each semester the department holds several informational sessions about NYS certification and program requirements. Students considering graduate study in elementary and early childhood are encouraged to attend. Contact the department (718-997-5302) for the schedule.

Departmental Standards for All Programs:
Responsible training for work in the areas of elementary and early childhood education requires that candidates, in addition to meeting their program’s academic requirements, also demonstrate appropriate professional behavior in all classroom, field, and professional settings. Such behavior includes, but is not limited to, interpersonal skills, professional judgment, ethical conduct, and academic integrity. In addition, candidates are expected to demonstrate oral and written communication proficiency, sensitivity to student issues, including those related to diverse backgrounds, practices, and beliefs, as well as the effective management of personal stress or adjustment difficulties. Candidates who fail to meet these personal and professional standards will be subject to review by their program faculty and/or the EECE Student Review Committee, and sanctions, such as dismissal from the program, may result. Students have the right to appeal, and should familiarize themselves with guidelines set forth in the Queens College Bulletin.
