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.
MA Childhood Studies is taught in collaboration with the Centre for Inclusion, Childhood and Youth, which brings together researchers from across the University who have an interest in research with children and young people.
It also collaborates with the Centre for Research on Families, Lifecourse and Generations (FLaG) in the School of Sociology and Social Policy, a forum for researchers and research users which offers a wide range of seminars, workshops and training to help you expand your knowledge for a wide range of careers.
