Students may elect to major in Psychology & Early Childhood Education, earning certification to teach in grades PK-3 through the Office of Teacher Preparation and Certification. The certification from the Louisiana State Department of Education can then be transferred to other states. Students must fulfill all Tulane degree and major requirements in order to obtain a Bachelor of Arts degree, which includes a series of psychology courses in the School of Science & Engineering as well as teacher certification course work. After completion of the bachelor’s degree, students complete an education-specific capstone course. Students will work with both an advisor in the Psychology department and an advisor from Teacher Preparation & Certification to ensure that both major and certification requirements are met.
