Child Study & Education (CSE)

Welcome to the Master of Arts Program in Child Study and Education at the Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study. This program combines a Master of Arts degree with elementary teacher certification. Housed in historic McCarthy House, our program admits only 45 students each year who want to pursue a career in teaching elementary school children with graduate training that may lead to a doctoral degree.

Our program is truly unique in the world. In addition to combining teacher education and graduate studies, our program offers intensive practicum placements in our on-site Laboratory School as well as in public school settings; you can also choose to concentrate in the areas of special education and/or early childhood.
