Child Development Changed to Early Childhood Education

Jun 28, 2021

Recently the Child Development curriculum underwent a review to better reflect the focus of the program and the needs of the industry in which we serve. As a result of this review, the curriculum title was changed to "Early Childhood Education" instead of "Child Development". This should also be easier for students to take the core courses for our major in order from ECE 1 through ECE 8. This change is effective immediately for the Fall 2021 semester which is why you won't see Child Development courses for Clovis Community College within WebAdvisor, instead enter Early Childhood Education.

When searching in WebAdvisor use the search term, Early Childhood Education.

To alleviate any confusion, the following chart outlines the old and new course numbers:
