The Child and Family Sciences degree from The University of Southern Mississippi will help you turn your interest in promoting healthy development within families and a better quality of life for children into a rewarding career! A Child Development degree prepares you to work with children and their families in educational, institutional, and human service settings. You’ll dive into subjects like classroom management, behavior and guidance, curriculum development, classroom methods, program administration, and more to prepare you for a career promoting young children’s healthy development.

The Child Development emphasis will allow you to obtain a Mississippi teaching license for pre-K/Kindergarten grade levels and use your skills in a classroom environment. However, we do not guarantee that we will meet the licensure requirements of other states.
