Early Childhood Education, B.A. - with government recognition
In recent years, professional training for early childhood teachers in Germany has become increasingly academic, creating the need for new state-certified undergraduate degrees such as Early Childhood Education B.A. with government recognition at Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences.
This degree programme is designed in particular to impart the extensive range of theoretical and practical skills needed for pedagogical work with children aged 0 to 14 years. This expertise enables students to adopt nuanced pedagogical approaches based on children’s specific needs, fostering and guiding each child’s individual development with expertise, empathy and sensitivity.
Moreover, graduates are trained to read and reflect on pedagogical situations on the basis of education theories and philosophies in order to develop recommended courses of action, particularly for parents and education organisations. To that end, methods and theories from pedagogy, the humanities, social science and psychology are core pillars of this degree programme. Practically-oriented instruction, group discussions and video analysis sessions in the KLEX Tutorial Workshop, and a continuous emphasis on developing analytical and communication skills combine to create a degree programme that prepares and qualifies graduates for promising careers in a growing market, or for a master’s degree track at a university in Germany or elsewhere in Europe.
Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences also offers a part-time study option for working professionals in Germany. Contact our study advisors for more information: KP-FGO@hochschule-rhein-waal.de
