B.A. in Anthropology and Education with Endorsements in P-3 and Teacher of Students with Disabilities

About the Program

The Anthropology and Education with an Endorsement in P-3 and Teacher of Students with Disabilities program prepares students for successful careers in early childhood education with a broad understanding of the scientific study of humanity.

Students will explore three areas of anthropology: cultural, biological, and archaeology, and can put their knowledge to practice with real-time experiences inside the classroom.

Students will learn how to navigate the needs of young children from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds and young children with disabilities and be presented with a wide range of opportunities such as: teaching in a resource room, self-contained setting, or a general education inclusive classroom.

Student Outcomes

Our students have gone on to have successful careers in education with the assistance of Monmouth University’s extensive network of local school and district partnerships. At Monmouth, students are introduced to a variety of teaching environments and work with a diverse group of individuals, and small and large groups of students, making them more marketable upon graduation.

Undergraduate Research & Internships

Monmouth University students are immersed in the classroom as early as sophomore year and will have supervised clinical experience including 100 hours in the classroom.

Students have the opportunity to participate in the study abroad, Clinical Component Courses, Fieldwork for Clinical Experience and Component, Clinical Practice, applying for substitute teaching credentials, and our collaborative P-12 School Partnerships.

Adding to their career preparation, students enrolled in the Anthropology and Education program can additionally participate in archaeological digs and historic excavations in places such as Sandy Hook, New Jersey, or Jamaica.
