Gain the diversity of knowledge today's employers are looking for by studying and specializing in not 1, but 2 academic disciplines. Offered exclusively at Trent's Durham GTA campus, the Child & Youth Studies program focuses on how children learn through play and creativity. Complete a full-year community placement, working with local school boards, health centres, museums, cultural centres, community agencies, group homes or youth programs and get a head start on a teaching career with a direct pathway into Trent's Bachelor of Education (BEd) program (limited guaranteed spaces). Rooted in the social sciences and inspired by a passion for social justice, Trent's Sociology program engages students in understanding and acting on the consequences of social change. Gain first-hand research experience working with experts in the fields of aging, law, medicine, popular culture and sexuality, examining and exploring these topics in a supportive environment.
