Inclusive Childhood Education Major

Houghton College offers an integrated major in Inclusive Childhood Education which prepares teachers to serve all learners at the elementary level (grades 1 to 6). Upon completion of the program, students will be recommended for teacher certification in both Childhood Education (grades 1-6) and Special Education (grades 1-6). We believe that effective teachers must be well-equipped to serve children with diverse needs in a variety of educational settings. That’s why Inclusive Childhood Education majors are exposed to theories, philosophies, strategies and methods designed to meet the wide range of learner needs in a variety of inclusive, elementary-level contexts. 

Students must choose either of the following:

 NOTE: Completion of a concentration or major in art (BA) or music (BA) in conjunction with the ICE major does not lead to certification to teach art or music.

One course in history or political science that focuses on an aspect of the U.S. national experience, chosen under advisement. 4
