Return to: MS in Early Childhood Studies
This program is no longer accepting new students. Current students must complete their programs of study in accordance with Walden’s Time-to-Degree Completion policies.
The Early Childhood Public Policy and Advocacy specialization allows students to examine the complexities of the infrastructure of the early childhood field from local, state, national, and international perspectives. Students will analyze how policies are formed, the relationship of policies to politics, and the ways funds are allocated. In addition, students will study grant writing, family and political advocacy, and research practice.
