A degree or certificate in child and family development provides an in-depth understanding of varied career opportunities in the profession through course studies. A career in child and family development is very rewarding. It requires a person with a positive self-concept, who is energetic and reliable, and genuinely enjoys working with children and their families.

Students will have hands-on supervised experiences with children from birth to 13 years of age and will apply knowledge that they have attained in the classroom. Students will engage in field experiences at an approved licensed/accredited childcare facility or public/private school in the community. The child and family development program offers degree and certificate programs. The certificate program is for students who wish to gain a general limited background required for many entry level positions. The child and family development program leads to target jobs in deep east Texas.

The child and family development program at Angelina College transfers up to 65 credits to Stephen F. Austin State University towards the Bachelor of Science in Human Development and Family Studies. Students transferring to Stephen F. Austin State University typically complete the Bachelor of Science degree in two years.
