Course summary

Overview

This innovative MA takes a global and multi-disciplinary approach to the social study of childhood and youth (from 0-18 years).

Drawing on sociology, psychology, anthropology, history, philosophy, human geography and inclusive education among others, this programme will give you an understanding of the lives of children and young people in different social, cultural and educational contexts around the world.

Core modules will give you a sound knowledge of concepts and approaches in the study of childhood, but you’ll also be able to choose optional modules to suit your interests and career aspirations.

Learning and teaching

We use a range of learning and teaching methods, including seminars, tutorials and workshops that allow you to discuss in more depth the issues arising from the course reading. However, independent study is also an important element of the degree, allowing you to pursue your own interests and develop your skills.

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.

Assessment

Most of the modules on this programme are assessed by essays. However, for the compulsory module Research with Children and Young People, you will develop and submit your own research proposal.

Career opportunities

The MA Childhood Studies course has been designed to meet the needs of both international and UK students of childhood and youth, including practitioners who intend to work with children in educational, social, health or Non-Governmental Organisational settings. It will also enable students to pursue an academic career: for example, future doctoral study in education, social policy, sociology or psychology.
