Return to Academic Programs Return to: Academic Programs

The program is intended for individuals who already have an Early Childhood Education Certificate or whose career paths do not require them to have a certificate. Individuals who complete the post-baccalaureate Early Childhood Education Certification program (Primary Plus) at the University of Pittsburgh may apply up to 18 credits from their certification studies towards the Master of Education program. Application to the M.Ed. program must be made within three years of completing the certification program. Course work in the Master of Education program is intended to enhance the continuing professional development of early childhood teachers beyond the skills and competencies acquired during certification study and to assist them in gaining greater self-determination through heightened awareness and understanding of their own teaching practice. Students complete a minimum 36-credit-hour program and must fulfill all curriculum and degree requirements for graduation.
