The B.A. in Child Study is a hallmark program of St. Joseph’s College, providing an outstanding education consistently ranked among the best teaching programs in the New York Metropolitan area. The teacher education program is registered and fully accredited by the Council for Educator Preparation (CAEP).
The B.A. in Child Study is the only program in the New York City/Long Island area that prepares students for state teaching certification in four areas within one department: Early Childhood (birth-second grade), Childhood (first-sixth grade), Early Childhood: Students with Disabilities (birth-second grade) and Childhood: Students with Disabilities (first-sixth grade).

Child study graduates are in constant demand in tri-state area schools and beyond the region as teachers, school administrators, principals and superintendents. The program also prepares students for graduate work in infant toddler early intervention; early childhood, childhood and adolescence special education; literacy; bilingual education and administration; and other disciplines such as speech pathology, psychology, and guidance counselling.
