Get a head start
on your MA CSE program
For students interested in combining an undergraduate degree in science with a
master’s degree focused on education, we offer a variety of Combined Degree Programs (CDPs).
Each Combined Degree Program leads to both an Honours Bachelor of Science (HBSc)
degree from the University of Toronto and a Master of Arts in Child Study and
Education (MA‐CSE) degree from OISE, including qualifications to teach JK-Gr 6 in Ontario schools.
To be considered for one of the Combined Degree Programs and conditional admission to the Master of Arts in Child Study and Education program, students must meet the following minimum admission requirements:
Please Note: Meeting the minimum requirements does not guarantee admission to the program.
To have the conditions lifted from the offer of admission and to gain full acceptance to the MA‐CSE program at the end of Year 4, students must meet the following requirements:
Students with conditional acceptance to the MA CSE program must take 1.0 FCE elective course (1 full-year course or two half-year courses) between Years 3 and 4 of their undergraduate program.
The following are examples of recommended elective courses that are currently offered. Combined Degree Program students will be integrated in classes with non‐CDP students from across the Department of Applied Psychology & Human Development.
It is recommended that students anticipating early years employment complete one graduate level early childhood elective course.
It is recommended that students complete one graduate level elective in special education.
OISE reserves the right to cancel courses for which enrolment or resources are insufficient.
