Opportunities After Graduation
Once you earn your early childhood education degree and test to receive your Professional Educator License you can begin teaching children from birth through the grade level designated on your certificate. In Illinois, this means birth through grade 2 as of September 1, 2019. By pursuing specialized instruction and courses you can also be endorsed to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) or become a Special Education teacher. We have a team of professionals who can provide you with current statistics, valuable information and helpful coaching while you try to land your first job after graduating. Our Career Services Department can get the answers you need to succeed.
