Bachelor of Early Learning Program Development (Honours)

Program Details

Credential: 4-Year Bachelor of Early Learning Program Development (Honours)

This four-year Bachelor degree program prepares students with the skills and applied understanding of enhanced education in early learning program development. While developing strong critical thinking and professional communication skills to work successfully in interprofessional teams, students experience authentic, situational learning opportunities that highlight the links between theory and practice in engaging and meaningful ways.

Program design, implementation and evaluation are considered within a framework of research informed practice, population focus, and social inclusion. Students are challenged to consider multiple theoretical perspectives as a lens to understand social policy and determine promising professional practices that shape social and educational programs.

Graduates are well-prepared for a number of progressive careers that support children, youth and families in the areas of curriculum implementation and co-ordination, program development and co-ordination, and social policy work.
