The Early Childhood Development major is for those desiring to work in various human service settings to meet the emotional and relational needs of children in the early stages of life. It emphasizes the family as the primary institution for raising Godly people, and focuses on providing the young child with a healthy, Christian environment.
Possible employment opportunities include:
- Day Care Center worker
- DHS child care facility operator
Please Note: This is not considered an education degree, but rather a human services degree, which will prepare the student to work in social settings (rather than public school settings).
