    EC-A is a teacher education program for developmental range birth through age 21.  EC-A is a certifiable major in the Department of Educational Studies (DES). This department is within the School of Education (SOE) at UW-La Crosse. EC-A majors are required to complete a content major.

    Students are encouraged to declare their education major as soon as they realize they want to be an educator, typically, but not necessarily,  in their first year at UW-La Crosse.  Once an education major is declared, students are assigned to a specific academic advisor in their chosen major.  Though students may declare EC-A as their major at any time after enrollment at UW-La Crosse,  students must apply to be accepted into any teacher education program.  In addition to coursework, students must complete the portfolio and content test requirements. The Eligibility Criteria and a link to the online application are below.
