 Childhood Education (Grades 1-6)



Bachelor of Arts

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.

Master of Arts

​The EECE department offers a 36-credit program leading to the Master of Arts in Teaching (MAT) degree for individuals who did not receive undergraduate training to become teachers and/or individuals who are not initially certified in the State of New York in Childhood or Early Childhood Education. MAT students specialize in either Childhood (grades 1 through 6) Education. Successful completion of the MAT program and additional New York State certification requirements will lead to initial and professional New York State certifications in Elementary Education. 



 Dual Certification Program


In collaboration with the Department of Educational and Community Programs (ECP), EECE also offers a dual-certificate program leading to the MAT with initial and professional certifications in both Childhood Education (grades 1 through 6) and Special Education.
