With an A.A. in Child Development, students will be educated in foundations of early childhood education preparing them for (1) careers in family home day care, group day care, preschool teaching and administration and (2) advanced professional study.

In meeting the University requirements for the Associate of Arts degree, students should select their required 32 semester hours from the liberal arts core requirements. This will enable students to continue studies in Elementary Education at the bachelor's degree level if desired.
