Master of Arts in Child and Youth Studies

The MA program offers a unique multidisciplinary approach to the study of children and youth through required foundation courses, electives and a research-based thesis. The program may be completed on a full-time or part-time basis. For full-time students, it is normally a six term or two-year program. There are two required foundation courses: (1) childhood, youth and society (encompassing the sociology, anthropology and political economy of childhood and youth) and (2) child and youth development (drawing upon theoretical and applied perspectives in developmental psychology). Students are also required to complete a course in research methods for Child and Youth Studies. This program is part of a growing movement for multidisciplinary perspectives in Child and Youth Studies and students are encouraged and expected to show evidence of integration across disciplines. The program provides theoretical foundation for the study of childhood and youth and the application of social science research methods through the completion of a research-based thesis. The program will also provide advanced learning opportunities for students intending to continue their education and professionals who currently work in research or service settings. We anticipate that some graduates will pursue further study at the doctoral level while others may pursue a wide variety
