This exciting, interdisciplinary degree offers a broad approach to understanding childhood and youth - supporting you in pursuing a wide range of careers including teaching, social work, child and family law, and youth and community work.

You'll be taught by experts in education, anthropology, psychology, sociology and social policy - key disciplines in the study of childhood and youth - and will examine some of the fundamental issues concerning childhood and youth in the UK and internationally.

The programme takes a child-centred approach, encouraging you to consider the rights and perspectives of children on all matters that affect them, and you'll benefit from opportunities to apply your theoretical knowledge while gaining practical experience of working with children and young people.
