About BSc Childhood Studies

The course focuses on policy and the rights of children and young people from birth to 19 years, exploring contemporary debates within a global context. Teaching is research-based and benefits from the expertise of lecturers from related disciplines, including education, psychology, sociology, social work and law.

In the first year you will develop a solid understanding of the social, psychological and historical constructions of childhood. In the second and third years you can choose optional units from a wide range of subjects, allowing you to pursue different routes through the degree to develop the career path that is right for you.

The interdisciplinary nature of the course makes it ideal for students who want to develop a holistic understanding of childhood. Our graduates go on to work in areas as diverse as education, children's therapy, social work, law and social justice, children's charities and government and the civil service.
