Child Development (Non-Credit) Courses

Child Development Careers

Child Development programs will prepare students for a variety of careers working with young children and their families. Whether students choose to pursue an Associate of Science degree (AS), Associate of Applied Science degree (AAS) or Certificate program, they will receive the skills and knowledge necessary to achieve their child development career goals.

Completion of the Associate of Science degree prepares graduates for jobs such as Early Head Start and Head Start teacher assistant, preschool teacher assistant, parent educator, family support professional, childcare center administrator and state agency employee. The Associate of Science degree will transfer to four-year institutions for students who wish to obtain a bachelor’s degree and/or Oklahoma teacher certification.
