Description: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.

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