Early childhood education Meet and Greet

255A3001For educators who want to combine their passion for educating young children with a desire to better understand what impacts learning in the classroom, consider the Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction – Early Childhood Education program at UMKC.


Socio-cultural and constructivist theories frame the 36 credit hour program that aims to achieve high outcomes for birth-grade 3 learners in urban settings. Courses are offered in face-to-face, online or blended formats to meet the needs of practicing professionals. Small class sizes provide graduate students with individual attention and opportunities to collaborate with colleagues.


Once in the program, students will

  • Develop ECE curriculum
  • Apply child development and learning theory
  • Conduct action research
  • Strengthen advocacy skills
