Childhood and Youth Studies

This is an interdisciplinary and interprofessional course offered in collaboration with anthropology, education, psychology, law and sociology. It enables you to bring a range of contrasting disciplinary and professional perspectives to bear on policy, practice and research with children and young people. New research in developmental, psychological, sociological, anthropological, cultural and educational domains is used to scrutinise the differing political and ethical claims on childhood and youth that inform contemporary policy and practice. This course sharpens your analytical and writing skills, and exposes you to new and original ways of thinking about children and young people. The course provides research and training tools for completing empirical research with children and young people. These skills and tools are transferable to the workplace. The interdisciplinary nature of the training also results in post-qualifying students developing a broad knowledge base to communicate effectively and successfully with a wide variety of child- and youth-focused professionals.
