  • Objectives
    The Community, Family and Child Studies (CFCS) program leads you toward a career as a caring, ethical professional in a wide range of social and community fields. Working through this dynamic, professional two-year program, you acquire the skills and values needed to promote, strengthen and support the well-being of individuals and families. You’ll study a curriculum that’s based on contemporary research and grounded in principles of social justice including freedom, equity, fairness and respect. The learning environment in the Community, Family and Child Studies program is a co-operative one—all learners contribute, and all learn from one another. As you progress through courses and practicum placements, you’ll become familiar with a variety of community services, and you’ll gain solid professional experience. You’ll develop your own leadership style, and you’ll have the opportunity to participate in community development, planning and advocacy activities as you work toward your diploma.
