A Program For Everyone-My Program of Choice

Recently, I’ve been having a lot of conversations with people about university and how to decide the right program. It’s interesting because until you are in university, taking the classes, immersing yourself in the readings, participating in seminars, you really never know what to expect.

Finding a university is hard, in an of itself, but choosing a program can be just as difficult! There are so many to choose from and sometimes you just can’t seem to pick the perfect one for you.

To be honest, I was very indecisive about which program would be for me. The only thing that I knew was that I love kids and might one day want to be a teacher. And so, I chose the Child and Youth Studies program at Brock. And boy am I glad I did!

Child and Youth Studies is a very unique program with multiple variety of courses. This year I am taking courses such as “Understanding Children’s Minds”, “Children and Youth in the Digital Age”, “Behavioral Issues in Children”, “Children and Youth in the Law” and more! I have thoroughly enjoyed my courses and learn more and more each lecture. Child and Youth Studies is a unique program in the sense that it allows for students to discover passions they may not have realized they had. With various courses ranging from troubled teens, to understanding children’s development, to working with children with disabilities, there is bound to be a set of courses that will interest you!
