Becoming a Golden Hawk means more than just cheering on our (really good) varsity teams – it means being a student who cares about your community, who works hard in the classroom, and who takes advantage of all the learning opportunities that can happen outside the classroom, too.

"[My favourite part of the program was] group work and placements, especially placements because they not only allowed you to gain contacts but also give you a lot of hands-on experience."

"I loved that I had the flexibility within the program to get minors in other areas to really hone my learning of Youth and Children's Studies to where I wanted it."

"The program lived up to my expectation. All the classes were exactly what I'd expect from a youth and children degree along with the professors. They were always there to help and gave one-on-one attention if needed."

"The program provided me with a variety of courses that allowed me to broaden my knowledge. It gave me the chance to explore subject areas that I may not have pursued had I been in another program."

"I am one year graduated and already using my degree. I've had a job teaching overseas for one year now! Definitely using all of my knowledge from Youth and Children’s Studies at Laurier."

"I am a teacher now and I think that the Youth and Children's Studies program really prepared me for teachers college. I loved the classes that I had to take and the electives I was allowed to take as well. I always recommend the program to friends and family."
