The B.S. in Child, Family & Community Development (CFCD) degree provides opportunities for students who wish to work with young children and their families in a community setting outside of a formal public or private school setting (meaning without a state-issued teaching certification). This program will develop leaders in the field who focus on improving the lives of young children and families whether that be through high-quality early care and education programs, non-profits, children’s museums, recreation centers or similar specialized programming, etc. The focus on leadership development as it relates to the development and implementation of high-quality early care and education programs as well as programming for the family unit as a whole is a vital need in our immediate area.

The BS in CFCD has two "concentrations": (1) Leadership in Early Learning and Family Relations and (2) Recreation and Community Leadership. The program of study for both is listed below.

This program is awaiting SACSCOC approval with an ANTICIPATED start date of Spring 2023.
