Child Studies (MA)

Master of Arts (MA)

Program overview

The MA in Child Studies investigates child cognition, emotion, social functioning, language, literacy, numeracy, moral development, special needs learners, and play. Education researchers also consider the critical role that families, peers, teachers, schools, inclusive practices, communities and culture play in development. They examine factors that shape children’s development using quantitative, mixed method, and qualitative approaches (including arts-based methodologies). Students also have access to our Observation Nursery to document children’s learning processes. Faculty members offer individualized mentorship and support, allowing students to link theory to practice while completing an internship project or thesis. Montreal provides numerous settings in which students can work with children and families in both English and French, including Quebec’s universal childcare system, preschool programs, diverse schools (including French immersion and alternative schools), after-school programs, two children's hospitals, and community services.
