Early Childhood Education – AA or AS

ECEThe Associate of Science transfer option in Early Childhood Education is ideal for students seeking transfer into a Bachelor’s level program at a senior institution. Those completing coursework at DCC will be prepared to transfer into a Bachelor of Science program. General Education courses, early childhood core courses, and early childhood specialty courses combine to provide the student with a background in liberal studies together with extensive early childhood coursework and experiences. DCC has an articulation agreement in Early Childhood Education with The University of Montana – Western in Dillon. The Associate of Arts and Associate of Science are transfer degrees and are awarded without designation of major, but do follow curriculum transfer plans.  These degrees indicate that a student has completed a course of study that is essentially equivalent to the first two years of a baccalaureate degree.

PLEASE NOTE: When selecting courses, students should consult the catalog of the school to which they intend to transfer.  They should then work with their DCC advisor to assure that the proper classes are being taken at DCC.  Together, the student and the advisor will select courses that will fit into the program at the transfer institution.

Take advantage of our 2+2 articulation agreements in Early Childhood Education with University of Montana-Western.

Attend two years at Dawson Community College and save money. Then move on to university seamlessly.
