Infants and Toddlers
This degree plan includes the 38 hours of general education requirements generally completed during the first two years of a four-year educational program, along with 25 hours of required early childhood courses specific to infant/toddler studies. Students completing the Associate in Science Degree may transfer to any senior-level state institution and expect to find their lower division general education requirements satisfied. Students should consult the four-year institution to which they are planning to transfer and carefully select courses that meet the requirements for that school. This can be done while working with their advisor at Western. Students completing the Associate in Science in Infants and Toddlers Degree are prepared for employment opportunities in Head Start programs, child care centers, family child care homes, and church-related child care.
