Early Childhood Policy Certificate

The Early Childhood Policy Certificate builds students' expertise in applying research-based knowledge to public policies affecting young children and the adults who care for them. Students complete 12 credits of coursework, which includes a cornerstone Early Childhood and Public Policy course, a policy elective course (chosen from an approved list), an open elective course (chosen in consultation with the Certificate Program Director), and a capstone workshop or independent study focused on early childhood policy.
