IX. Degree Programs

Bachelor of Applied Science (BASc.), Major Early Childhood Studies - Diploma in Early Childhood Education

Our innovative program focuses on the physical, social, emotional and cognitive development of young children within the context of the family and community. The program curriculum has been designed to ensure that students are provided the breadth and depth of knowledge necessary to be able to work confidently with and create programs for children and families and to be eligible to pursue further studies, such as teacher’s college, graduate programs or specific therapeutic approaches. The program offers students the opportunity to develop a strong skill-set through participation in a variety of field placements and the knowledge required for a professional career in a leadership position in any area working with children and families in the private or public sector.

Students are required to complete 20.00 credits in order to be eligible for graduation. This includes 18.00 core credits, 2.00 general elective options. Students must complete these requirements in order to be eligible to graduate with both the university honours degree (awarded by the University of Guelph) and the college diploma (awarded by Humber). No option exists to graduate with only one of the above listed credentials as the program is fully integrated.
