The website BestOnlineColleges.org recently ranked the online early childhood education programs at Bay Mills Community College (BMCC, Brimley, MI) and United Tribes Technical College (UTTC, Bismarck, ND) as among the best in the United States. The two tribal colleges stand in the top 50.
The website used an array of criteria in making its selection. All online programs had to be accredited, offering degrees recognized and approved by state boards of education. Those making the top 50 also must offer a range of specializations or concentrations. Finally, BestOnlineColleges.org gives greater weight to those online programs that have certification tracks which give graduates better opportunities to find employment as teachers.
BMCC’s Associate of Arts in early childhood education program offers concentrations in administration, teacher preparation, and family service. All three tracks focus on children to age five and stress Native American culture and cultural sensitivity. The program at UTTC, offers an associate of applied science degree in early childhood education. Students in the UTTC program can also minor in special education.
