Salt Lake City, Utah (PressExposure) October 01, 2009 -- Education is one of the careers that show a steady growth curve. Even the U.S. Department of Labor notes that opportunities for teachers are expected to grow steadily over the next few years. In keeping up with the commitment of supporting steady career and long term employment for many prospects, Independence University now announces an Associate Degree program in Early Childhood Education.
An Associate Degree in Early Childhood Education will equip graduates with the knowledge and understanding of child development, child center administration, health and safety, the sciences, social sciences, and the arts among other related subjects. Career opportunities include jobs as childcare workers, pre-school teachers, teacherâs assistants, and daycare workers. Professionals in the daycare industry or working as preschool teachers may meet necessary licensing requirements through completion of the A.S. in Early Childhood Education.
In order to be eligible for the Early Childhood Education Degree, students will require a high school diploma, a GED, or the equivalent. All degrees programs are accredited and are proven, effective alternatives to a traditional classroom education allowing you to study whenever and wherever you want without the hassles associated with an on-campus education. According to Carl Barney, Chairman and CEO of Independence University, "All courses are designed specifically for adult students; they are the flexible, affordable, and convenient way to learn. There are no on-campus classes, no registration lines to stand in . . . just high-quality education delivered at a distance."
