The online Bachelor of Arts in Early Childhood Education/Elementary Education program is designed for Elementary and/or Special Education Para Educator or Long Term Substitute at the Early Childhood to 6th grade level who wishes to become a licensed teacher at the Early Childhood and/or Elementary Education (K-6) level.

Teacher Apprentice Program™ (TAP) is built around the philosophy of an "inverted curriculum," meaning many of the "professional" courses are at the front end of the program to focus on heightening skills in their current position. The goal is to increase your success in the classroom from the beginning and then build on those strengths as you matriculate through the program. You will earn college credit for your experience as a Para every semester which will apply toward your degree.

You will not have to quit work in order to complete this degree.
