Child Development

Students who have an associate's degree or sixty hours and are interested in completing a four-year college degree in Child Development, have the opportunity to do so through Central Methodist University programs at St. Louis locations. If students need additional hours toward professional development requirements, the CMU program is flexible to meet their needs.

Child Development is offered for students who are interested in a career in early childhood settings that do not require public school certification. Students will participate in the same general education and early childhood courses. These courses will provide students with a background to establish, manage, and evaluate their own day care centers. Students will receive the knowledge and background for a career in commercial and/or non-profit childcare initiatives including Head Start Programs.

Degrees Available:
Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science
