Bachelor of Science, Early Childhood Education Four Year Plan  

The Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education at Southeastern University equips driven students to work with young children in academic settings (pre-kindergarten through 3rd grade). Through hands-on coursework and a student-teaching internship, you’ll be prepared to earn several professional certificates, enabling you to teach in public or private/Christian school settings. These include the Florida Department of Education (FLDOE) professional certification in the subject area of pre-K/primary; FLDOE endorsements in both reading and English for speakers of other languages (ESOL); and certifications from the Florida League of Christian Schools (FLOCS) and Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI).

All teacher education programs have met requirements for Florida State Approved Programs.

Students who plan to teach in Florida schools must file an application with the Office of Teacher Certification for the State of Florida and complete the post-degree requirements for the teaching credential.

Students graduating from Florida state-approved teacher certification programs are currently eligible for initial certification to teach in all members of the National Association of State Directors of Teacher Education and Certification (NASDTEC), an interstate reciprocity contract allowing certified teachers to obtain teaching jobs in other states and territories. An applicant’s eligibility for certification according to the interstate agreement contract will be determined after the application for a Florida teaching certificate is on file in the Teacher Certification Office.
