Knowing you play a role in supporting children and their families is priceless. That’s why Oklahoma City Community College offers programs for students who are interested in pursuing careers in child development. You can earn an associate degree in arts in child development, an associate degree in applied science in child development, or a certificate of mastery in child development. Consult a faculty advisor to find out which program is best for you. The associate degree in arts in child development will specifically prepare you to transfer to a four-year college or university to continue your learning in human development and family science, early intervention and child development.
