Course summary

Overview

Anthropology of Childhood, Youth and Education MSc was the first degree of its kind to be established and is still unique in its deep anthropological exploration on what it is to be a child or to be young.

As part of the course, you will look at historic perceptions of childhood in the West to the development of European rights of protection, compared to experiences of childhood in other parts of the world, like the street children of Brazil.

In a module on learning and education you will compare physical development stages, including how learning is acquired and universal patterns of play, to the range of ways children are prepared or educated to fit cultural expectations.

The course’s key organising principle is that understanding children requires the study of how their relations with others - peers, older and younger children, parents, teachers and other adults - inform their practices, identities and world views.

Careers and your future

In addition to providing a firm grounding for doctoral research on childhood and youth, this degree will enhance your professional development in many fields, including teaching, social work, counselling, educational and child psychology, health visiting, nursing and midwifery, paediatric specialisms, non-governmental agencies and international development.

As you journey through the course, you will also develop a valuable set of analytical and research skills that can be used in a wide range of careers. Students can also exit with PGCert and PGDip awards.
