Program Description

The master in Childhood and Youth Studies (MA) has three paths to choose from.

In the master in Childhood and Youth Studies (MA), you will be taught by experienced and passionate lecturers with professional backgrounds in children and young people, early years, and youth work. You will study a range of modules and gain an understanding of the theoretical perspectives through which childhood and young people are currently understood and defined within interdisciplinary contexts. You will also reflect critically upon current legislation, policy, and practice relating to children and young people.

During the master in Childhood and Youth Studies (MA), you will evaluate organizational structures and provision which regulates and promotes children’s and young people’s status, welfare, health and well-being, learning, and how multi-agency working impacts childhood and youth contexts. You will interpret different political issues and events, past and present, that impact child and young people. You will also develop your knowledge and skills in research which will enable you to undertake advanced research projects in the social sciences.
