Course summary

We look critically at the differing political and ethical claims on childhood and youth that inform contemporary policy and practice.

You’ll explore new and original ways of thinking about and working with children and young people. Through the course, you’ll learn to:

  • communicate effectively with child- and youth-focused professionals
  • carry out empirical research with children and young people
  • transfer your analytical, writing and other skills to the workplace.

You can study modules across anthropology, international development and child rights, sociology, gender studies, sexual health, psychology, media and social work.

CAREERS

You may already have a professional qualification in social work, teaching, youth work, early years or related fields and wish to specialise further in the field of childhood and youth studies.

Our MA is ideal for those thinking of working with children and young people in local, national and international agencies in the statutory and non-governmental sectors, as well as those already working as advanced practitioners, leaders and managers, project development and policy officers seeking to expand and develop their expertise.

Whatever your level, this MA provides an excellent step into doctoral-level study in any academic discipline or profession concerned with childhood and youth.
