children, and a degree in early childhood education and leadership for directors. Students will complete practicum experience and their full-time internship face-to-face in a classroom. Designed especially for educators in Head Start programs, preschools and early childhood programs, the degree combines a solid academic curriculum with the flexibility of online learning for non-certification candidates. Although the coursework can be completed online, 95 percent of the education courses require interaction and/or observation with young children, educators and the community. Practicum courses and internships are considered “hybrid,” a mix of online seminars with coursework in the field.

Park University’s education programs and certifications are approved and accredited by the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, and are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission of the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
