Diploma Exit Option

You may choose to exit the Bachelor of Child and Youth Care with a diploma after successful completion of the first 60 credits of the degree.

Even if you plan to complete the diploma exit option, you will need to apply to the four-year Bachelor of Child and Youth Care degree program. 

Over the two years of study, you complete required courses that develop your knowledge and skills to build relationships with individuals and families, helping them to gain new insights, access supports, and learn strategies for navigating the complexities of their lives. The first two years focus on a variety of topics including human development, professional helping, diversity, family, creative interventions, and mental health. If you choose the diploma exit option, you are fully prepared to move immediately into entry-level, front-line positions in the field.

For further information on admission requirements, program regulations and student plan, refer to the Bachelor of Child and Youth Care.
