Months of entry
Childhood and Youth Studies is an interdisciplinary Masters addressing the span of childhood from birth to 18.
The course is designed to provide an excellent grounding for those wishing to pursue, or develop further, their skills and careers as practitioners or researchers working with children and young people.
Through the course we explore alternative conceptions of childhood and youth and consider children and young people's lives and experiences through the social, economic, technological and global contexts in which they are situated.
You will also examine the expanding role of services for children and young people, the challenges this provides for practitioners and policy makers and the ways in which these services position children and their families.
