Learn and think about children, childhood and youth through diverse lenses. Our unique Childhood Education program at Brock University draws on psychology, education, sociology, anthropology, cultural studies, and criminology — among other disciplines — to really understand young people and their perspectives.


This theoretical and practical training offers an approach to understanding children, childhood and youth that includes: diversity, inequality, exceptionalities, families, cultures, social worlds, schools, peers, communities, popular and media culture, and international issues that span the globe. This wide-ranging knowledge base opens up doors to working with young people in a variety of capacities.

A service-learning component is required in Year 2 of the Childhood Education program at Brock University, with additional possibilities for service-learning experience in Years 3 and 4.
