Overview

Our MA Education – Childhood and Youth Studies is an interdisciplinary Masters. It covers the span of childhood from birth to 18.

The course is suitable for those who work with children and young people, from a range of professional backgrounds. We have designed the course as an excellent grounding to develop your skills or further your career, either as a practitioner or researcher.

You will examine:

  • the role of services for children and young people

You will also explore alternative conceptions of childhood and youth. And consider children and young people's lives and experiences through the social, economic, technological and global contexts in which they are situated.

We have good working relationships with:

  • local mainstream and special schools
  • children's centres
  • other services for children enabling.

Career prospects

The course enables the sharing of ideas and concerns between a range of practitioners working with children and young people and facilitates professional networking, especially in the local area.

For students on the full-time course, the close links the course team have with local settings and services allows for the setting up of placement opportunities if desired.
