You will study three core modules relating to children, youth and international development, including the rights and participation of young people, and how to conduct research with children and youth.
Later in the course, optional modules offer the opportunity to appreciate how children and youth-related issues are addressed from alternative disciplinary perspectives including anthropology and sociology.
Through the placement module you have the opportunity to conduct a sustained project with an external organisation which often provides ideas and knowledge towards your dissertation project.
Optional modules are indicative and available subject to numbers.
A range of teaching and learning techniques are employed on the course including lectures, seminars and workshops, most of which will encourage your active involvement in discussion and debate.
Staff also place a strong emphasis on tutorials, typically in groups, where you will focus on developing your study skills (critical reading and writing), careers support, and exam and assignment preparation.
In addition, one-to-one tutorials are available for more personal course support such as exam feedback, developing research proposals and dissertation supervision.
