Description: Professionals working with children and youth face many challenges involving complex relationships with families, communities and governments. Child Studies at Carleton prepares you for careers in this demanding area. The program was originally developed for graduates of Early Childhood Education (ECE) programs, but the broader scope of the new curriculum allows for entry into the program without an ECE diploma.

Through core courses in child studies and other relevant disciplines you will learn about a wide range of topics (e.g., children’s rights, policy and practice) pertaining to children and youth in Canada and around the world.
