Child Development/Family Relations Associate of Science

The Child Development Program prepares students for an Associate of Science Degree in Child Development/Family Relations.  Students develop knowledge and skills needed for success in transferring to a four-year college or university. The program prepares students to work with young children in a variety of settings including child care centers for infants and toddlers, preschool children and school-aged children. As with all programs, students who intend to transfer to a four-year institution should research the transfer institution's requirements and plan to complete the CSU GE Breadth pattern or IGETC GE pattern.
