School-Age Education

This curriculum prepares individuals to work with children in elementary through middle grades in diverse learning environments. Students will combine learned theories with practice in actual settings with school-age children under the supervision of qualified teachers.

Program Outcomes:

Course work includes child growth/development; computer technology in education; physical/nutritional needs of school-age children; care and guidance of school-age children; and communication skills with families and children. Students will foster the cognitive/language, physical/motor, social/emotional, and creative development of school-age populations.

Occupational Outlook:

Graduates are prepared to plan and implement developmentally appropriate programs in school-aged environments. Employment opportunities include school-age teachers in child care programs, before/after-school programs, paraprofessional positions in public/ private schools, recreational centers, and other programs that work with school-age populations.

Additional Information:

Prior to the practicum or internship coursework requirements, students may be required to submit a certified Criminal History Check from the Clerk of Superior Court’s office and a completed fingerprint card for submission to the State Bureau of Investigation (SBI) for a criminal history check (Section 2700 of Subchapter 3U- Child Day Care Rules on Criminal Records Check).

Students with a felony conviction may have limited certification and employment opportunities in the field and may not be able to complete the Early Childhood Education degree or School-Age Education degree.
