Child And Family Services (AAS.CFS)

The primary objective of the Child & Family Services program is to provide students who are interested in a career working with children and/or the family sector with the appropriate academic background and practical experience needed to successfully gain employment in a variety of job opportunities associated with this specific background. Employment opportunities include the following: parent advocate, parental model trainer, subsidy specialist, child care specialist, and family aide specialist. In addition, the program was designed and created to be a transferable option to achieve a Bachelor of Science degree in family and consumer sciences with a focus in family service. Contact an academic advisor regarding transferability options. ECE 120 and 125 must be taken the same semester.
