Program Mission

Welcome to the Master of Arts Program in Child Study and Education at the Dr. 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 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.

Our distinguished faculty make significant contributions to research in the areas of child development and education and encourage students to participate in their active research projects. When you are admitted to our program, you will become a graduate student in the Department of Human Development and Applied Psychology at OISE, where you can work with and learn from faculty members in a variety of fields such as school and clinical child psychology and developmental psychology and education.

Each year outstanding graduates leave the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study prepared to make a difference in the lives of children.

Apply to our CSE Program: 



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 and research. The philosophy of the 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.

Admission to the two-year M.A. requires undergraduate studies equivalent to a University of Toronto four-year bachelor’s degree with standing equivalent to a University of Toronto mid-B or better in the final year. Applicants are also required to have experience working with groups of children, preferably in positions of responsibility. Normally an interview is required prior to admission.
