Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Early Childhood Studies
((N/143/6/0009) 04/16


Graduates of this programme will be well equipped with the knowledge and skills to contribute professionally towards the early childhood industry. The programme is aimed at contributing towards the growth of Early Childhood Education in Malaysia, by supplying trained graduates to develop the early childhood industry sector which currently lacks human capital trained at the graduate level.



Graduates can seek employment as pre-school operators or educators in both the public and private sector; franchise entrepreneurs; and publication of children's materials. Graduates could also serve as officers with Social Welfare Departments and children charity organizations. Graduates who further their study and gain some hands on experience with young children may also apply for the growing number of lecturing posts within the field. Opportunities may also exist for graduates to expand their skill and knowledge by working and/or studying overseas.
