Human Development and Family Studies

School of Health and Human Sciences

The Department of Human Development and Family Studies offers an undergraduate program leading to a BS in either:

  • Birth through Kindergarten Online Teacher Licensure (2Plus), U543
  • Early Care and Education Online (2Plus), U544

The 2-Plus program is designed for students who have a two-year Associates degree from a participating North Carolina Community College. The mission of the 2-Plus program is to help community college graduates transfer to UNCG with advanced standing and pursue specific UNCG majors.

Programs of study in the department are interdisciplinary, requiring a synthesis of knowledge from the social and behavioral sciences, early childhood general education, and early childhood special education.

The HDFS online program is part of the 2-Plus program at UNCG.
