The Associate of Science Degree in Early Childhood Education is a transfer degree intended for those students who will continue a four-year bachelor degree in early childhood education. The degree consists of general education courses and child development courses. Maximum transferability for the associate of arts degree can be assured when students carefully coordinate their associate of arts degree course work with the general education requirements of the four‑year institution to which they plan to transfer.
Early Childhood Education majors must make a grade of “C” or higher in order to successfully complete a child development course. Results of the rubella test (or proof of vaccination) and tuberculosis testing must be on file before students are permitted to work with the children in the Child Development Center.
