Childhood and Youth (F55)

This course offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of childhood and youth underpinned by a commitment to integrated practice. It is ideal if you want to enhance your knowledge of this area, whether you're already working in the field or planning to do so. You'll begin by exploring the family; law; children's rights; politicised childhoods; participation and voice issues; consumerist childhoods; education; ethnicity and religion; child criminology; child sexuality; and multi-cultural childhoods - within a worldwide context, using case studies linking theory to practice. Finally, an extended piece of writing will help you examine the changing policy, organisational, personal and professional contexts of work with children and young people.
