Career Outlook

Early Childhood Educators improve young children’s social and cognitive outcomes to greatly influence their growth and development into healthy and successful adults. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment for preschool teachers is projected to grow 18% by 2030, much faster than the average for all occupations. Upon completion of the program students will be qualified to work in a variety of programs that offer early care and education for children birth to age eight and particularly those with highly mobile populations such as military installations.

Career paths include:

  • Head Start teaching or leadership positions
  • Infant/toddler and preschool programs
  • Childcare centers and homes
  • Before and after school programs for children ages birth to 8
  • Program director

Finance Your Education

The University of Nebraska offers some of the most affordable tuition rates in the region, particularly for our online programs. Explore the array of funding options to finance your education in a way that makes sense for you.

Online tuition rates are calculated by credit hour and college offering the course and, because the University of Nebraska is a public institution supported by Nebraska taxpayers, Nebraska residents may receive a lower tuition rate than out-of-state students.

Cost Per Credit





Note: Campuses may charge additional fees; see the Paying for School page for more details.

We believe cost should not be a barrier to accessing higher education, even for online programs. Financial aid and scholarships are available for many students. Please see the Paying for School page for additional information and links to campus financial aid resources.

Our programs are an ideal way for military, veterans, and dependents to advance education with military advisers and staff on each campus, flexible deployment and activation policies, and generous acceptance of transfer credits. Visit our Prospective Student page and explore what the University of Nebraska offers.
