For more information about graduate studies in the Department of Child and Family Development, review the SDSU Graduate Bulletin, available here: CFD Graduate Bulletin 2013-14.
Note: Many students complete the EC-SEBRIS Certificate before continuing to the M.S. Degree in Child Development. The focus of the M.S. in Child Development is on the early years and prevention with an emphasis on parent-child inter-generational relationships to enhance school readiness and prepare teachers to work with families with a focus on socio-emotional and behavior support in educational settings and homes. After completion of the EC-SEBRIS Certificate, students may be able to complete the M.S. in Child Development within one academic year (two semesters). For more information about the Master of Science Degree in Child Development, visit this site: M.S. in Child Development at SDSU (http://coe.sdsu.edu/cfd/prospective/masters.php).
The EC-SEBRIS Certificate is funded by the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency.
