Course summary

The PhD in Childhood and Youth Studies gives you the opportunity to develop specialist knowledge in an area of interdisciplinary interest and to hone advanced research skills. As part of the internationally recognised Centre for Innovation and Research in Childhood and Youth (CIRCY), you’ll work with faculty who are global in their outlook and experts in their fields.

Our doctoral researchers come from all over the world. For many, the PhD is an important step in advancing a professional career.

AREAS OF STUDY

The PhD in Childhood and Youth Studies is linked to three Schools within the University: Education and Social Work; Law, Politics and Sociology; and Psychology. Depending on your specialist area of study, you will be based within one of those Schools, but you will also be part of an interdisciplinary community of doctoral researchers linked to the cross-University Centre for Innovation and Research in Childhood and Youth (CIRCY).

Across varied disciplines and substantive topics, CIRCY researchers seek to understand – and make a difference to – the lives of children, young people and families, and to build understandings of childhood and youth in theory, research and practice.
