Course summary

The Early Childhood Studies course covers a range of topics that include UK early years policy, a young child’s digital environment, how adults support children’s learning, health and wellbeing, media reports about children, inclusion and knowledge of practice. You will critique experimental studies, observational studies and field studies. Learning will be based on theory, research and practice. We’ll encourage you to recall your experiences of childhood and to reflect on them to develop your understanding and you will have many opportunities to gain work experience. Early Childhood Studies at Oxford Brookes will equip you with the experience and transferable skills for a range of careers in the Early Years sector and beyond. Are you interested in how young children learn, interact and grow? Then explore this fascinating stage of development and the crucial role of play in Early Childhood. Consider the role of the adult in children’s development and learning. Examine childhood from a sociological perspective and expand your knowledge of child psychology. Assessment for some modules includes group assignments that encourage collaborative and team working skills. Graduates of the Early Childhood Studies course embark on a variety of careers when finishing their studies. Many students use Early Childhood Studies as the basis to go on to train for related jobs such as teachers, social work, educational psychology, play therapy, youth and family work. Recent graduates have taken up jobs in educational publishing and educational charities. Some students use the degree as a platform to go onto careers in a wide variety of areas such as marketing, law and business. Throughout the course there are regular opportunities for students to meet with careers advisers. A key principle of our approach to teaching and assessment is that it should equip students with key work skills such as team working and presenting to an audience. The direct practical experiences and reflection on the link between theory and practice within the course are also significant factors in our students' subsequent employability.
