Master in

Early Childhood Education

The field of Early Childhood Education is concerned with the development and learning of children from birth through age eight. A master’s degree in early childhood education (ECE) is designed for professionals seeking expertise in this critical and highly specialized field. Our program focuses on early children education through a theoretical orientation which places early childhood education within broader social, historical, political, and cultural contexts. Coursework provides a context for students to critically examine early education and child care. Themes of bilingual and multicultural education and care, critical thinking, and reflective teaching are infused throughout the Early Childhood coursework. Early Childhood Education is an exciting and dynamic field in which standards for teachers are being raised and career opportunities are constantly developing. For those people who like to be around children, a career in Early Childhood Education can be a labor of love. M.A in Early Childhood Education program at the University of Lahore encompasses a spectrum of courses necessary to handle young children. Students learn about the education of children and study early childhood development, nutrition, first aid, children’s literature and child psychology. Practical experience is another significant part of the program.
