Delivered through Tempo Learning® by Walden, the competency-based MS in Early Childhood Studies program allows you to learn on your own schedule, at your own pace—and use your prior professional experience to accelerate your progress. Rather than complete set courses in a predetermined order, you will build on your existing knowledge by mastering a series of competencies and completing assessments.
Walden offers both state-approved educator licensure programs as well as programs and courses that do not lead to licensure or endorsements. Prospective students must review their state licensure requirements prior to enrolling. For more information, please refer to www.WaldenU.edu/educlicensure.
Walden enrollment advisors can provide guidance on licensure issues; however, it remains the individual’s responsibility to understand and comply with all state licensure requirements. Walden makes no representation or guarantee that completion of Walden coursework or programs will permit an individual to obtain state licensure or endorsement.
