Associate to Bachelor Degree Programs in Early Childhood


 SMSU Comes to You!


The Associate to Bachelor Degree Program in Early Childhood Education is a unique partnership between several Minnesota Technical and Community Colleges and Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU).

You can earn a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) degree that prepares you to receive licensure to teach in programs for students ages birth through third grade.

Students in the Associate to Bachelor Degree Program first complete an Associate of Arts or Science degree from an approved Minnesota Technical and Community College. The junior and senior years are completed by enrolling in a specific sequence of upper-division courses offered by SMSU.
