The Child and Youth Study program prepares students for careers in a wide variety of programs and services for children, youth and families. Students will normally focus on early childhood/child care administration or disability/special needs or youth care, but may take courses related to more than one area.
Students interested in teaching can apply for admission to Bachelor of Education (Elementary) programs upon completion of the Bachelor of Arts (Child and Youth Study).
All students must seek academic advising once admitted to the program. Students planning on applying to Education should seek advice on choice of electives.
Please refer to 2.1.4 Admission Requirements and 2.1.6 Additional Admission Requirements.
In order to transfer into the Bachelor of Arts (Child and Youth Study) program from another university program, students must have maintained a GPA of 2.0 in their previous 5.0 units at university. Please review 18.104.22.168 Requirements for Transfer Students.
