Welcome to the Online Master of Education in Early Childhood Education degree program.



This online program is designed so you can keep your day job and complete your master’s degree at the same time. ASU offers certification and non-certification options for the M.Ed. in Early Childhood Education program.

With a focus on instructional strategies for young children as well as psychology and technology, this program prepares candidates for positions in Pre-K through Grade 3 in public (and private) schools.

Alabama, along with Tennessee, Virginia, Arkansas and Louisiana in the South is among the 18 states that received a total of $224 million in development grants specifically for high-quality pre-school programs in urban, suburban, and rural communities*. There has never been a better time for educators to earn their master’s degrees as there is expected to be an increase in both the need for quality teachers and new facilities.

Please fill out the form on this page and you will receive personal assistance to learn more about how you can apply to this program. An admissions advisor will contact you to answer questions and introduce you to the application process.
