Course summary

If you think you can make a difference to the lives of young children and their families, then the BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies could be the course for you.A child’s first experiences have an impact far beyond those initial few years of life. Poverty, poor education, child abuse, as well as the positive experiences of creativity and play, have an enormous influence on a child’s development. The acquisition of knowledge and understanding of early childhood studies is progressive, and nurtures the development of a critically reflective perspective. The overarching themes and defining principles of the programme are education, social welfare, health and wellbeing. Early Childhood Studies explores and deals with all aspects of society, which impact on young people and their families. The course focuses on the development, growth, health and well-being of young children from 0-8 years old from both the perspective of the child and the adult. Different perceptions of children and childhood are considered and you are also encouraged to examine the wider socio-economic and political factors that influence children at all levels. You are provided with a sound theoretical foundation drawn from different disciplines such as psychology and sociology.We have several international links, and there are opportunities to visit various countries as part of your course and also undertake a work-related placement abroad.We have a student volunteer scheme in schools and other placements, so that you can gain the experience and practice you need before embarking on further study or a career.The course gives you enormous scope to tailor your studies to your own interests through optional modules, research and work-related practice.
