The faculty and the student support team of the online Bachelor of Arts in Early Care & Education program are committed to supporting you as you enter the program, earn your degree and prepare for your future. Teaching and advising are student-centered and designed to help you successfully navigate the program and achieve your goals.

Personalized Advising

Our advising approach is holistic, encompassing all aspects of your student experience. Support ranges from academic planning to career guidance and more.

At the start of the program, you’ll meet with your adviser to develop an individualized graduation plan. Then you’ll connect regularly to check in on progress and discuss any obstacles you might be facing. If you need help, your adviser is there to listen and point you to available UW resources.

Engaged Faculty and Community

Faculty in the program are dedicated to your success, employing a “high-touch” teaching approach to keep you engaged. They check in weekly with students and embed career goals in courses to make them relevant to your experience.

The faculty also help foster a reflective and collaborative community where students feel empowered and all voices are heard. Students grow this community by sharing experiences and best practices and offering feedback and support to each other.
