Summary

MA Childhood Studies is a taught Masters programme which takes an informed and critical approach to the academic study of childhood studies. This programme would be of interest to undergraduates looking to progress to the postgraduate level and professionals interested in specialised or advanced study of childhood.

The MA Childhood Studies is an interdisciplinary course with a strong emphasis in the social sciences, including perspectives drawn from sociology, social policy, anthropology, geography and history. The course is informed by the United National Rights of the Child (UNCRC) framework and is committed to a child-centred philosophy. Modules will reflect on the principles of protecting the rights and interests of children and young people, and the increasing importance of their participation in these discussions. This curriculum is continually updated and developed to reflect the changing landscape of childhood studies.

The curriculum encourages students to develop their own interests and professional practice through the dynamic study of childhood. This postgraduate programme supplements a BA (Hons) degree and provides an advanced understanding of current, sometimes controversial, topics facing children, such as media, sexualities, embodiment, death and politics. In the current move toward evidence-based practices, the research skills gained through this degree will help to enhance your career prospects and give you the leading edge on current practice.
