About

The early years of a child's life are critical years that play a major role in determining the child's developmental trajectory throughout life. The Early Childhood Education program is offered by the University of British Columbia.

Overview

The Faculty of Education at UBC is fortunate to have a number of faculty members whose research and professional interests focus on children from birth to age 8. The strength of this group is in its breadth across disciplinary areas, the variety and the high calibre of its research, and its commitment to professional development. As a collective, this group represents a significant strength within the Faculty of Education that attracts outstanding students, new faculty, and research funding.

The Early Childhood Education program from University of British Columbia is a course-based degree; while the MEd also includes research courses, its focus is primarily on knowledge of professional practice.

Career Options

While the majority of students in the MEd program are teaching professionals, this program is also appropriate for individuals in other professions related to early childhood education and care, such as child and youth care, nursing, psychology, and social work.

Students may also aspire to pursue administrative or leadership roles in the education sector, as well as higher coordination/directorship positions in public offices and NGOs.
