Early Childhood Studies:
Birth - Age 5 (B.S.)
Curriculum | Leadership/Administration
SUNY Cobleskill’s B.S. in Early Childhood Studies: Birth - Age 5 emphasizes best practices in the education and care of children, birth through age five. It offers a full range of early childhood courses and field experiences, including a 450-hour internship for which students may choose from a variety of education and agency settings. There is also a strong liberal arts component, research experience, and career/graduate school preparation.
The program offers two concentrations: Curriculum and Administration/Leadership. The Curriculum track prepares students for employment as infant, toddler, and preschool lead teachers in child care, private preschool programs, and agencies such as Head Start, as well as social service work such as case managers in early intervention. The Administration/Leadership track prepares students to be leaders in the field, providing advanced instruction in management of early childhood programs and helping students prepare for the Children’s Program Administrator Credential (CPAC). Several courses are available on-line to accommodate the needs of place-bound, working students.
