Overview

Bachelor of Arts in Child and Family Studies

The Child and Family Studies Program is unique with a particular focus on two thematic areas of study:

  1. Human Development and Learning; and
  2. Child and Family Well-Being: Issues, Services, and Social Justice.

Students can pursue a Major, Specialization or Honours Specialization.

Further, you want a career within child and adult developmental and/or behaviour services, health/mental health services, child welfare, education, justice, government, or even the private sector, and have a real appetite for social justice and making a significant difference. 

You may choose to complete one of the 2 Applied Certificates in Applied Behaviour Analysis or the Program Evaluation and Applied Research Certificate (PEAR) as you learn to improve systems and services for children, youth, or adults, across the social and human services sector.
