Preparing Early Childhood Educators
Degree Completion Program Expands Across California


Excerpt from Access Magazine: 2017-2019 Strategic Report

Sacramento State’s degree completion program preparing early childhood educators has put down roots in more communities across California.

The Bachelor of Arts in Child Development – Early Development, Care and Education (EDCE) is offered in partnership with the College of Continuing Education (CCE) and the College of Education at Sacramento State.

This hybrid program in child development has been in high demand and on the move with our expanded outreach to rural areas of California.

We teamed up with California community colleges and other local partners, setting up satellite learning sites where students finish their bachelor’s degree closer to home. New sites include Stockton, Marysville, Rocklin and Lake County, in addition to locations in San Diego, Sacramento and Solano counties.

The hybrid format combines virtual lectures with Sacramento State professors and face-to-face activities led by on-site facilitators, who specialize in child development.

Sacramento State Professor Karen Horobin received one of the highest honors within the California State University system for excellence and innovation in creating this program. Here’s her story.
