About Childhood and Education in Diverse Societies at Middlesex University


The children’s workforce needs innovative and creative leaders who are confident to work with diverse communities to promote social justice. This programme builds on the diversity of London as a global city to empower you to transform conceptions of practice with children and young people, and to lead innovation in a changing world.

Why study MA Childhood and Education in Diverse Societies at Middlesex University?

In increasingly diverse societies it is essential that professionals have confidence in engaging with all forms of diversity and the skills to promote social justice. You will begin to think about childhood and education through the lens of ‘diverse societies’ which means you can learn through a comparative approach, and also develop your understanding of the diversity within societies.

You will be enabled to develop a critical and nuanced understanding of how childhood and education are constructed and experienced differently, reflecting the importance of context and the intersectional identities of individuals. You will have the opportunity to apply cutting edge theoretical and research-informed knowledge to your employment, if you already work in the sector or to voluntary experience, if you are not in relevant employment.

This course is ideal for graduates with an interest in working with children and families in the community, or taking a role within formal education.

Course highlights

  • You will explore exciting and innovative theoretical perspectives throughout the course that draw together insights from a range of thinkers and practitioners from around the world
  • You will have "real-world" opportunities to contribute in bringing about change through volunteering and work-related modules
  • You will have the opportunity to develop advanced research and presentation skills, culminating in a conference presentation and a journal article.
