The Master of Arts in Child Study and Education Program is offered at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study, a centre of professional teacher training a​nd research in childhood and education, which includes a Nursery through Grade 6 Laboratory School.

The philosophy of this program is based on the belief that successful teaching requires an understanding of how children’s capacities, concerns, and behaviour change with age, how individual differences reflect developmental changes, and how social and physical environments influence children’s development.

The program introduces students to educational and developmental theory and research relevant to educational settings, showing how this research can inform classroom practice. Students also learn how to objectively study children, using both practical assessment and formal methods of inquiry. These areas of knowledge combined with knowledge of effective teaching methods (such as an inquiry-based approach) and learning environments result in educational practices that build on children’s current levels of development.

The non-thesis program requires two years of full-time study leading to a Master of Arts degree. Graduates are recommended to the Ontario College of Teachers for a Certificate of Qualification, which qualifies the holder to teach in the primary and junior divisions of Ontario schools.

This program offers two fields:
-Practice-Based Inquiry (PBI) in Psychology and Educational PracticeThe field is based on the use of collaborative inquiry and data-based decision-making to enhance teachers’ practice and student learning and success. This field will provide a foundation in the use of a broad range of information sources to address questions of practice using an inquiry cycle.

-Research-Intensive Training (RIT) in Psychology and Education
The field provides concurrent training in research methods and educational practice for elementary teacher certification. It supports the development of expertise in scientific examination of educational and psychological issues and highlights the integration between science and classroom practice.
