Course summary

Our MSc Children, Youth and International Development is one of the very few in the UK that focuses on childhood and youth studies within their international context. You will explore how childhood and the experience of being a child are defined and experienced in different times, places and cultures. You will develop a sociological understanding of how childhood is constructed differently across cultures and we will also look at how childhood is influenced and shaped by wider changes within societies.

You can choose from a range of option modules in human geography, international development and sociology. One of our option modules is an international field trip, which will deepen your understanding of globalisation, cultural change, urbanisation and economic development, while also developing your research skills in the field.

This course will be of interest to anyone working, or intending to work, with children in service provision, in social policy or in international development, particularly in culturally diverse settings, or anyone who has an interest in cultures of childhood. You will study in an environment of active research, taught by world-leading scholars in the field, and you will develop the skills you need to design and produce high-quality, independent research.

CAREERS AND EMPLOYABILITY

Graduates go on to careers in education, international development and social policy settings. Possible professions include social worker, community development worker, or learning mentor. This degree can also be useful in becoming a learning mentor or youth worker.

We offer a comprehensive Careers Service to help you advance your career, while our in-house, professional recruitment consultancy, Birkbeck Talent, works with London’s top employers to help you gain work experience that fits in with your evening studies.
