General Information Go to top of document
Administrative Assistant Lora Baliukus 905-688-5550, extension 3740 Cairns 319 brocku.ca/childandyouthstudies The Department of Child and Youth Studies (CHYS) offers four-year programs leading to the BA Honours or BA with Major in Child and Youth Studies, a three-year BA Pass degree and a concurrent BA (Honours)/BEd (Primary/Junior) degree program. Child and Youth Studies programs provide a broadly based interdisciplinary approach that considers theoretical and applied approaches to children and youth within the multiple contexts of culture, the economy, the law, family, school, peer group, and community. With roots in psychology, sociology, anthropology, criminology, education and cultural studies, the academic focus provides an integration of approaches through which a comprehensive understanding of children and youth can evolve. For further information see the Child and Youth Studies Student Handbook. The BA in Child and Youth Studies is not equivalent to an Early Childhood Education diploma and does not directly lead to certification as a preschool teacher. Many colleges offer fast-track Early Childhood Education programs designed for University graduates. Normally, graduates must have successfully completed CHYS 3P50 and 3P52. Alternately, the Association for Early Childhood Education (Ontario) may issue a letter of equivalency upon completion of additional qualifications. Brock students, both full-time and part-time, may apply to Child and Youth Studies. Applicants to major in BA CHYS (Single or Combined) or BA with Major must have credit in CHYS 1F90 and a minimum 60 percent major average in CHYS required courses completed as of May 1. All CHYS courses, GEOG 2P10 and 2P12 (for combined CHYS/GEOG majors), PSYC 2F23 (for combined CHYS/LING and CHYS/PSYC-PSYC focus majors), SOCI 2P00, 2P11 and 2P38 (for combined CHYS/SOCI majors) will be used to calculate the CHYS average. Students who have other credits may be evaluated on an individual basis. Students failing to maintain the required average may request an opportunity to upgrade their marks and to be reinstated. The University Request to Declare or Change Major form must be completed and returned to the Child and Youth Studies office by May 1. New applications to the Child and Youth Studies Honours, BA with Major and Pass BA programs are accepted in years 2 and 3. Late applications will not be accepted. Brock students, both full-time and part-time, may apply to minor in Child and Youth Studies. Applicants to minor in CHYS must have credit in CHYS 1F90 and a minimum 60 percent minor average in CHYS required courses completed as of May 1. The University Request to Declare or Change Major form must be completed and returned to the Child and Youth Studies office by May 1. This is a limited enrolment program, and applicants to major or for Year 4 (Honours) must have the approval of the Chair of Child and Youth Studies. Admission is not guaranteed by attainment of the minimum requirements. Admission to Year 4 (Honours) is by application through the department. Students wishing to apply for the course work option are required to have a minimum 70 percent major average and completion of fifteen credits which satisfy the requirements of the CHYS BA (Pass) (single or combined) degree requirements. Students wishing to apply for an individual thesis or applied research project are required to have a minimum 75 percent major average, a 75 percent combined average in CHYS 3P10 and 3P15, and completion of fifteen credits which satisfy the requirements of the CHYS BA (Pass) (single or combined) degree requirements. Applicants for Honours Child and Youth Studies year 4 must submit a Child and Youth Studies departmental application form (available at brocku.ca/social-sciences/departments-and-centres/child-and-youth-studies/application-forms) to the Child and Youth Studies office by May 1, in addition to the University Application for Year 4 Studies form (available at brocku.ca/registrar/forms). Students must apply to complete either a thesis, project or course work option for an Honours degree. Each Honours option will include a capstone experience. Late applications will not be accepted. Acceptance into the Individual Thesis and Applied Research Project streams may also be based in part on the availability of an approved supervisor from the CHYS department. Students who have completed an appropriate College of Applied Arts and Technology two or three-year diploma must have a minimum 80 percent cumulative average for consideration by Child and Youth Studies for CHYS BA (single or combined) and may receive between three and five transfer credits if they are admitted to Brock. Child and Youth Studies evaluates the files of eligible students in consultation with the Registrar's Office after acceptance to Brock has been completed and transferable credits have been awarded. All applicants must take CHYS 1F90. It is recommended that CHYS BA (single or combined) majors seek academic advice (brocku.ca/childandyouthstudies). See the Child and Youth Studies Student Handbook (available at brocku.ca/childandyouthstudies) for more information. Students who have completed an appropriate College of Arts and Technology two-year diploma must have a minimum 80 percent cumulative average for consideration for the BA Child and Youth Studies (Honours)/BEd Program and may receive a maximum of three transfer credits if they are admitted to Brock; students who have completed a Child and Youth Worker diploma may receive four transfer credits. All applicants must take CHYS 1F90. It is recommended that CHYS BA (Honours)/BEd majors seek academic advice from the Concurrent Education Programs Office (brocku.ca/education/futurestudents/concurrentteachered).  
Child and Youth Worker Go to top of document
The Child and Youth Worker program involves courses offered through Brock and Durham College of Applied Arts and Technology. This five-year program combines courses and training in a variety of community settings at Durham College with an Honours degree in Child and Youth Studies at Brock. The program caters to individuals who wish to have a career working with children and adolescents and their families in a variety of settings such as the Children's Aid Society, group homes for young offenders, children's mental health centres, and schools and day programs for distressed children and youth. The program allows students to gain both solid applied skills and training, and a strong theoretical knowledge about a variety of topics in Child and Youth Studies. Students who successfully complete the requirements for this program will be granted both an Honours degree in Child and Youth Studies from Brock, and a Child and Youth Worker diploma from Durham College. Gaining both an Honours degree and this diploma would ordinarily involve attending post-secondary institutions for seven years, but the Brock and Durham program combines the two in a single integrated package that can be completed in only five years. Students will normally apply for admission to the program following the successful completion of Year 1 courses, as specified below. Applicants must have a minimum 75 percent Brock University overall average to be considered for admission to the program. Volunteering experience and attainment of the Brock Leadership Skills Certificate programs are considered assets. Successful applicants must maintain a minimum 70 percent CHYS major average during Years 2 and 3, and meet other program requirements to continue in the program. Enrolment in this program is limited. Admission to the program is not guaranteed by attainment of the minimum requirements. Application forms and further details concerning the Child and Youth Worker program are available at brocku.ca/social-sciences/collaborative-programs
