Concordia University's Master of Arts in Child Studies provides an individualized and exciting way to enter the world of children from a variety of scholarly and practical perspectives. The program provides students the opportunity to examine critically a variety of issues relating to children and education (pre-school to high school) from multiple perspectives: developmental, cognitive, social, and cultural. These issues may be related to the child in the family, the community, or the school environment, and may include areas of concentration in daycare, play and socialization, curriculum and instruction, learning in the content areas, children and technology, exceptionalities, and language development.

Students working toward the MA Child Studies collaborate closely with program faculty who are prominent professionals, researchers, as well as active practitioners. These individualized partnerships make the MA Child Studies program a unique and fulfilling experience for all students.

Education is a broad and multidisciplinary field that is becoming even more important and exciting as society changes and knowledge diversifies. As an acclaimed centre of innovation and excellence in both teaching and research, Concordia University's Department of Education meets the challenges of the future through its widely recognized degree programs at the undergraduate (BA, BEd) and graduate (Diploma, MA, PhD) levels. Our graduates are highly sought after by school boards, daycares, government, health and social agencies, human resource departments and the business community, as well as other universities and educational institutions.

The Department of Education at Concordia offers acclaimed graduate degrees at the diploma level, master's level, and at the doctoral level in four areas of specialization:

  • Applied Linguistics
  • Child Studies
  • Educational Studies
  • Educational Technology

Graduate studies at Concordia are sustained by an intensive program of faculty research and publication, supported by a healthy level of external funding. We try to offer opportunities to work closely as part of a research team to as many of our graduate students as possible, and through teaching assistantships, some students work closely with professors to further develop their professional skills. The Francis Friedman Resource Center is a space dedicated exclusively to our graduate students, offering them a place to make and call their own.

Degree options

Currently, students may choose one of two options in their pursuit of this degree:

Option A (Thesis Option): Students choosing the Thesis Option will pursue advanced studies in a particular area of interest and will then conduct a research project under the supervision of program faculty that will culminate in a thesis.

Option B (Internship Option): Students selecting the Internship Option will pursue advanced studies in a chosen area and engage in an internship project, which involves 100 hours of field work in a setting that involves the care or education of children and a comprehensive Internship Report based on this experience.
