The HDFS Department participates as part of an interdisciplinary team, which offers an undergraduate program in Birth through Kindergarten Education resulting in B-K licensure. This degree provides coursework and field experiences in settings for young children with and without disabilities. The emphasis of this program is to prepare professionals (i.e. teachers, early interventionists, itinerant teachers) to work with infants, toddlers, preschoolers and kindergarteners with and without disabilities and their families.
