Course summary

This taught Masters degree provides a unique insight into childhood in an international context. Exploring the historical, geographical and cultural definition of childhood across different continents, civilisations and centuries, you will gain a range of perspectives on childhood, children’s rights and the reality of lived experiences. A blend of compulsory and optional modules, delivered via blended learning, enables you to explore additional topics such as child mental health, social relations, and the involvement of children in international and internal migration. Learning from research-active experts within an interdisciplinary department, you will develop critical study skills, receive training in social science research methodologies and deliver a substantial research project. An optional international field trip enables you to gain an international perspective and outlook, with an additional opportunity to apply your knowledge and understanding in a work setting. The programme is suitable for professionals, teachers, recent graduates and those working in the children’s workforce.

What are my career prospects?

The programme will enhance your professional career opportunities and employability, preparing you for a wide variety of roles across the children’s workforce and in international development.

You may wish to pursue a career in youth and community work, counselling, children and young people’s services, or within local, national and/or international policy development. You could also consider a career with a charity, or work as a lecturer in further education (further training required).

The skills and experience acquired through successful completion of this MA also provide essential preparation for progressing onto research qualifications, such as an MPhil or PhD.
