MARQUETTE, Mich. (WZMQ) – The Online Master’ degree website (onlinemastersdegrees.org). Northern Michigan University’s Early Childhood Educational Program has been named one of the best online master’s degree programs, the 36th in the nation.
With a regional and national shortage of early childhood educators, the programs also can fall short in availability. Online schooling has made it much more affordable and accessible for young educators to have quality opportunities away from campus.
“I think sometimes the perception is that learning doesn’t start until kindergarten or first grade and really by the time they reach that point in their life there are specific windows for learning that are missed so we know that the science says that starting at birth with high-quality experiences is essential”, said Childhood Development Program Lead Cindy Basse.
The University is also partnering with Michigan AEYC T.E.A.C.H. The program offers a number of scholarships to early childhood graduate students and undergraduate students pursuing this degree.
