Welcome to the Children, Childhood and Youth Program!

York's Children, Childhood and Youth Program is a 120-credit, direct-entry, interdisciplinary Honours BA degree program, which also includes Double Major, Major/Minor, and Minor degree options. Based in the Department of Humanities and Faculty of Liberal Arts & Professional Studies, the Program consists of core courses in Humanities and additional child-related courses throughout the University.

The Children, Childhood & Youth Program explores the experiences of children and adult constructions of childhood throughout time and across cultures and geographical spaces, adopting a child-centered and children’s rights approach that recognizes children and young people as subjects in their own culture. The program offers its students a foundation in new and critical understandings of children and youth, their cultures, and their rights. It highlights youth social justice advocacy and community engagement practices.
