Program Description

The Merced College Online Program in Early childhood Education provides students with the opportunity to complete all degree requirements fully online. The short term courses allow students to continue in the workforce while advancing their career and fulfilling their educational goals.

The Associate of Science for Transfer (AS-T) degree in Early Childhood Education is designed to prepare students to transfer into the CSU system with guaranteed admission and junior status on their way to a baccalaureate degree.

As an added benefit to the Merced College Online program, the first 25 students to enroll in the Early Childhood Education program by Fall 2023 can receive an Apple iPad and keyboard to use while enrolled as a student in Merced College Online.

Program Outline

Programs are designed to be completed as a cohort, with students moving through their program from start to finish as a group, working to attain the same degree. We have mapped out the full sequence of courses to be completed in under two years, so students know exactly what they need to reach their educational goals. All courses are taken within the 18-week semester.
