|Field of Study:||Early Childhood Education and Teaching
|Description:||Ryerson University offers an innovative Master of Arts program leading to a Master of Arts (MA) degree in Early Childhood Studies.
This program is unique among graduate program in North America with a focus on integrating diversity into early childhood studies. Terms such as "diversity" and "inclusion" are used in the broadest sense to include issues of linguistic, cultural and racial identity as well as disability, gender, class, sexuality, age and migration status. This approach is in recognition of a child's need to develop a positive identity, not only as an individual but also as a member of a group. Through a critical and reflective process, students will develop a deep understanding of the complex issues that affect children and their families.
