Career Opportunities

Learn about career opportunities in Child Development.

Graduates in Child Development are prepared for a variety of careers working with young children and their families.

Career opportunities include direct service to children and families as child care program directors, lead/assistant caregivers, teachers (preschool, infant/toddler, elementary certification with early childhood endorsement), nannies, recreation leaders and early interventionists.

Careers providing indirect service include early childhood advocates, licensing specialists, consultants, researchers, consumer advocates, marketing representatives and software developers. In addition, graduates completing the Montessori concentration degree are prepared for placements with infants/toddlers (0-3) and early childhood (3-6) Montessori emphasis.

To prepare students for career placement, students compile a professional portfolio including résumé, log of field experience, professional statements and work samples. Students also participate in mock interviews which help to prepare them for future interviews.
