Course content

This course explores childhood from an interdisciplinary and international perspective.

During this course you will gain a familiarity with interdisciplinary perspectives and frameworks from fields such as education, psychology, sociology and social policy in the study of children and childhood.

On this course we engage with the debates, analysis and critique of current international and national research. We also explore the policy and practice implications of such research. You will critically explore key childhood related themes, including child development, children’s rights and the global child, and you will develop an understanding of key issues in relation to children, and become familiar with the diversity of children’s experiences over time and space.
