An intensive interdisciplinary degree, this programme responds to the increasing importance of the study of childhood in disciplines as widespread as philosophy, sociology and geography.
Designed to explore issues such as child law and how it is implemented through policy and practice, it offers an opportunity to develop skills in research and consultation with children and young people.
Youll examine the implications of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child for child welfare, disability, education, family studies, juvenile justice, social policy and social work, and gain knowledge and analytical perspectives on particular areas of legislation, policy, theory and practice that affect children.
The programme benefits from the childhood studies expertise of academic staff across the University.
Teaching combines lectures, seminars and tutorials, plus a combination of essays and assessed coursework. You will complete three compulsory courses and three optional courses, over two semesters, followed by an independently researched dissertation.
The academic entry requirement is a UK Bachelor Honours degree with at least 2:1 or its international equivalent.
An official transcript and certificate (if the degree has been awarded) is required upon application. References are not required upon initial application but may be requested at a later stage in the application process.
Where work experience is taken into consideration, an up-to-date CV and work reference is required.
