|As part of Interdisciplinary Programs the CSI program combines a unique focus on identifying often overlooked child competencies, a constructive questioning of existing understandings of childhood, and an exploration of the implications of the changing status of children and childhood in Canada and internationally. We take a critical view of the social institutions around childhood – the home, the school, the legal system, the educational system, etc. Students will engage with a variety of courses which offer opportunities to deepen their knowledge in the area and will gain skills in critical thinking and social and historical analysis as well as understanding how childhood is experienced by children. Issues around children’s rights and children’s agency are a prominent feature of our courses.
There are two certificate/diploma programs associated with CSI, open to any student at King’s who meets admission requirements. They are: Cert/Dip in Childhood and the Justice System and a Cert/Dip in Advocacy and Childhood. The Certificate is for those currently registered in a degree program, while the diploma is for those who have already graduated.
