Core Courses

To continue in, and graduate from the Children, Childhood & Youth Program, students need an Honours GPA (a weighted average of all York courses of at least a “C+” = 5.0).

Students are required to get at least a “B” in each of the three core courses in the Program (CCY 1999, 2999, and 3999). Core courses need to be taken one at a time and in order. You need to get at least of "B" in order to be eligible to enrol in the next level core courses (ex. you need to get at least a "B" in CCY 1999 in order to be eligible to enrol in CCY 2999). 

Provided that students have an Honours GPA, they are allowed to repeat a core course once to get the required minimum of a “B.”
