Explore the landscape of early childhood education from previously unseen angles. Understand more about children and the sociocultural communities they inhabit. Integrate these insights with examinations of classrooms and schools to better serve diverse populations of young children and their families.
UNT’s accelerated online Master of Science in Early Childhood Education program is designed for those who want to learn how to better respond to increasingly diverse populations through inclusive, culturally responsive and linguistically rich curriculum. Our master’s students critically examine the nature of early childhood classrooms, centers and schools in order to reconceptualize what it means to teach and care for young children. This knowledge translates into skills that can be applied across research, policy and practice settings, preparing our graduates to be advocates for children — whether it be better teachers, more reflective administrators or more critical researchers and policymakers.
