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.
