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.
