Early Childhood/Childhood Education students are strongly encouraged to study abroad if possible. Because of the sequencing of required education courses and the varying requirements of each academic concentration, careful and early planning is essential. 

Generally, it works best for Early Childhood/Childhood Education students to study abroad the second semester of their sophomore year or the first semester of their junior year. Summer is also a good option. Study abroad coursework usually will be applied to General Education and/or concentration requirements. A notable exception is the senior-year program in Australia through SUNY Cortland, where students complete half of their NYS-required student teaching.
