All programs in the Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Education (EECE) demonstrate a commitment to Ethics, Excellence, and Equity in education through preparing students to be teachers and community educators who respect all families, honor linguistic and cultural diversity, hold high expectations of all learners, and are proficient in the academic and technological standards of the profession. 
 

 About the EECE Department

 

The Department of Elementary and Early Childhood Education (EECE) offers undergraduate, graduate, and advanced certificate 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.

Important note regarding certification: 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.
