Early Childhood Generalist

Enhance your opportunities in early childhood education with our Early Childhood Generalist Endorsement. 



This program allows early childhood educators (pre-kindergarten through grade 3) to broaden their teaching options through grade 5.  The endorsement is an excellent way to grow professionally as a teacher, earn credits toward a master’s degree and expand employability. 


UF’s Early Childhood Generalist Endorsement program requires successful completion of three courses (EDSP 554 – Math that includes 20 hours of observation, EDSP 555 - Science, and EDSP 556 – Social Studies) and passage of the OAE Elementary Education (Subtest I) 018 and OAE Elementary Education (Subtest II) 019.
