Family and Human Services-Early Childhood Emphasis

The FHS-ECE program has been discontinued.

The ECE program, as it was originally designed, is permanently discontinued within FHS. The ECE program is currently undergoing a full redesign and the curriculum approval process can take up to 3 years for full approval. The outcome of the redesign has not yet been determined, but there will be announcements when the new program is in place.

Specifically, it will be managed by Dr. Lillian Duran within the Department of Special Education and Clinical Science.
