The Department of Elementary & Early Childhood Education's mission is to prepare inquiring and reflective educators to teach in diverse settings at the pre-school through grade eight levels in the public schools of New Jersey. Undergraduate and graduate programs are offered to students who are pursuing elementary/early childhood education as a profession and to certified teachers who want to enhance their professional development and practice through graduate study.
Attention Teacher Education Candidates:
The required PRAXIS Subject Assessments (formerly the Praxis II) test(s) must be taken and passed prior to student teaching.
