This innovative MA takes a global and multi-disciplinary approach to the social study of childhood and youth (from 0-18 years).

Drawing on sociology, psychology, anthropology, history, philosophy, human geography and inclusive education among others, this programme will give you an understanding of the lives of children and young people in different social, cultural and educational contexts around the world.

Core modules will give you a sound knowledge of concepts and approaches in the study of childhood, but you'll also be able to choose optional modules to suit your interests and career aspirations.
