Early Childhood Development: Articulated with SOU

Students interested in working with young children birth to kindergarten can take advantage of several certificates and degrees offered at UCC. The Associate of Science degree in Early Childhood Development has been developed with the cooperation and support of Southern Oregon University (SOU). The degree is fully articulated with SOU’s Early Childhood Development (ECD) program and allows you to transfer directly as juniors and be able to begin the ECD coursework at SOU with no loss of credits to pursue a bachelor’s degree.

The program offers an excellent balance of education and general education courses that support advanced study in the field of early childhood development. To identify the options for your general education credits to be taken at UCC, visit sou.edu/admissions/transfer, select General Education Transfer Guides and select Umpqua Community College from the drop-down menu.  For more information about this program, go to sou.edu/education/ecd.

If you are pursuing transfer, you should contact the SOU School of Education early in the second year of your AS program to be advised of additional requirements and procedures for admission to SOU. If you transfer before completing this degree, your courses will be evaluated individually toward the general education requirements in effect at SOU.

Program Requirements

Students are required to take the college placement test(s) at UCC to determine skill level and readiness indicated by test scores. To help ensure student success, students must begin with the courses within their skill levels as determined by placement test scores (e.g. math, world languages if desired, etc.) In addition, students may also be required to enroll in classes that would increase their academic success.

In addition, students will be required to enroll in the Oregon Childcare Registry to complete the criminal background check, obtain a Food Handler’s Certificate, First Aid and CPR card, and show proof of immunizations including MMR, in order to participate in the ECE Practicum and Seminar courses.

Students will be required to document the meeting of ECE program outcomes through the development of an electronic portfolio. Portfolio submissions will begin during ED 101 and continue on to completion of certificates and degrees.

Students must complete a minimum of 104 term credits of lower division collegiate courses with a minimum grade of C or better.

Language Requirement

Students who have graduated from high school or completed a high school equivalency program in 1997 or thereafter must have the following requirement for admission to a four-year Oregon state college or university:

  1. Two years of the same high school-level second language, or
  2. Two terms of college level second language with a grade of C or better (may be first year second language which can be used as elective credits)

Students planning to complete a bachelor's degree of a four-year school will be required to complete the equivalent of one year of study of a world language at the second-year level (or above) before graduation.
