Children, Youth and International Development
Childhood studies is an interdisciplinary area of study that puts children and childhood at the centre of its inquiry. It asks questions like 'What is a child?', 'How is childhood changed by wider changes in society?' and 'How do class, gender and "race" shape children's lives?'. International childhood studies put these questions into a global context, to ask how global forces such as war, economy and international development are reshaping childhood.
The programme is made up of 3 core modules, an option module and a dissertation. Part-time students take their option module and the core research module in Year 2. Option modules can be taken in international development studies, law and youth studies. Relevant option modules may also be taken from those offered within the School of Social Sciences, History and Philosophy, with the agreement of the programme director. Dissertation research in a relevant field is agreed with the programme director. Classes in Research Methods for Dissertation are taught with students from the MSc International Development, which gives you the opportunity for academic exchange with students working in the development sector. Core modules: International Political Economy of Childhood; Researching Children and Childhood; Social Studies of Childhood: Key Concepts and Issues .
