The Bachelor of Science in Family and Child Studies degree program focuses on family and child development and services, with emphases on family dynamics, family life education, and child development. Graduates in this program typically go on to careers in preschools and child care as lead teachers and directors, family services non-profit organizations and state agencies, or, after completing a graduate degree, marriage and family therapy.
Students who choose the Child Development option and take two elective business courses from a designated list also may simultaneously earn an Early Childhood Administration certificate. Students may also choose to only complete the 24-hour certificate program. Coursework in the certificate program is approved by the Center for Early Childhood Professional Development (CECPD) and leads to an Oklahoma Director’s Credential (ODC) for child care facilities.
