Study in one of the UK’s leading centres for childhood and youth based research.
Develop your knowledge of childhood and youth and consider what it means to conduct research with children and young people at an advanced level.
The MSc Childhood and Youth is suitable for practitioners, policy makers and postgraduates who want to develop their knowledge of childhood and youth and learn approaches to conducting research with these groups.
Our programme will help you build a solid foundation from which to critically evaluate how social structures, institutions, media, policies and practices impact upon children and young people.
You’ll examine leading theories, methodologies and research evidence in order to understand the relationship between the conceptualisation of childhood, methodological approaches to researching with children and young people and the social impact of childhood policies and practices in a variety of social and cultural contexts across the young life course.
