UNT Early Childhood Education program ranked 12th in the nation

The Interdisciplinary Studies degree in the University of North Texas’ College of Education is ranked among the best Early Childhood Education programs in the country in the 2019 ranking from BachelorsDegreeCenter.org.

The program ranked 12th among the 25 best early childhood education bachelor's programs for 2019. For the complete list, visit https://www.bachelorsdegreecenter.org/best-early-childhood-education-degree.

According to Bachelor’s Degree Center, to rank the best traditional, on-campus early childhood education degree programs their editors searched of all of the CAEP and NCATE accredited education schools in the nation. That initial pool of more than 500 schools was narrowed to those offering early childhood education specializations. Programs were ranked according to cost, employment rates, graduation rates, reputation and salary expectations.

“These programs are most likely to provide graduates not only with quality education, but a real opportunity to make a difference – and a living," according to Bachelor’s Degree Center.

The College of Education offers the University of North Texas Early Childhood Education degree through Grade 6 as a Bachelor of Science in Interdisciplinary Studies. Students can opt to reach for a specialized certification in the areas of Bilingual Supplemental Certification, ESL Supplemental Certification or Special Education for EC-12 Certification.

The degree requires the completion of approximately 120 semester hours, depending upon the selected teacher’s certification. UNT’s early childhood education bachelor’s degree program develops quality educators, as they must pass a rigorous curriculum to earn their degree.
