Online Master's Degree in Early Childhood Education (MTEA) - Contact Dr. Amy Malkus, for additional information.

We are hoping to add to our spring 2015 online cohort by enrolling new, interested students for fall 2015. All classes will be 100% online, so the entire master's degree can be completed from a distance or during non-work hours.  The cohort will move through at the rate of 2 courses per semester, so in just 24 months, you can have a Master of Arts Degree in Early Childhood Education. 

This is a non-licensure degree, but for students who already have licensure K-6, 1-6, K-12, etc. the courses will meet the requirements for an add-on PreK-3 license in the state of TN.  Out of state students can get a special eRate.  All the details you need to know are in the brochure, including information about class schedules, application procedures, etc.  Anyone with questions can contact Dr. Amy Malkus at or 410-463-0841.
