A unique new interdisciplinary degree program, Child and Youth Studies is offered exclusively at our Durham GTA campus and focuses on how children and youth learn through play. With strong foundations in sociology, psychology, education and the humanities, this degree inspires students to think deeply about the perspectives and experiences of child and youth. You will learn about child and youth rights and legal issues, and how children develop emotionally, socially, artistically, intellectually and physically. The program also has a rich focus on creative engagement, theatre and the arts.
Benefit from participating in, and contributing to, ongoing research in areas such as theory of mind, dreams, numeracy, development, language, perception and memory with renowned faculty and leading experts. Undertake an undergraduate independent research thesis or research practicum and work one-on-one under the supervision of award-winning faculty.
