Child Study & Education

https://www.oise.utoronto.ca/jics/​ ​​

The Master of Arts program in Child Study and Education (CSE) is offered by the the Department of Applied Psychology and Human Development at the Dr. Eric Jackman Institute of Child Study (Jackman ICS), ​a centre of professional teacher training and research in childhood and education, which includes a nursery-through-grade-6 Laboratory School.

Eligible graduates are recommended to the Ontario College of Teachers for an Ontario Teachers Certificate of Qualification, which qualifies the holder to teach in the primary and junior divisions of Ontario schools (JK to grade 6). For students who choose the Research-Intensive Training (RIT) field of study and undertake a major research paper (MRP), the program also provides the possibility of further graduate study. The second field in the CSE program, Practice-Based Inquiry and Data-Based Decision Making (PBI), emphasizes professional learning, teacher leadership, and using the inquiry process and various data sources to address problems of practice.

Core Jackman ICS faculty teach the majority of program courses. Laboratory School teachers supervise practicum placements and internships in their classrooms, making direct links between research and practice. (Teachers in the public and private schools also mentor students’ practicum placements/internships.) Other graduate faculty in the Department of Applied Psychology and Human Development teach elective courses; students in the CSE program thus profit from participating in a research-oriented department.

The Master of Arts program in Child Study and Education is one of two degrees offered at the Ontario Insitute for Studies in Education that allow graduates to teach as licenced teachers in the province of Ontario. For information on the Master of Teaching offered by the Department of Curriculum, Teaching, and Learning, please review that program's fact sheet or the department's website.
