This specialist Master's degree is one of the very few in the UK that focuses on childhood and youth studies within their international context. You will explore how childhood and the experience of being a child are defined and experienced in different times, places and cultures. You will develop a sociological understanding of how childhood is constructed differently across cultures and we will also look at how childhood is influenced and shaped by wider changes within societies. The course focuses on children, childhood and youth in an international context, so you will consider how global forces, including society and economy, international development and war, shape the experiences of children and young people worldwide. You will also explore other factors that shape childhood, including class, gender and ethnicity. By the end of the course, you will have an advanced understanding of how the complex interaction of the global and the local shape the experience of childhood. You can choose from a range of option modules in human geography, international development and sociology. One of our option modules is an international field trip, which will deepen your understanding of globalisation, cultural change, urbanisation and economic development, while also developing your research skills in the field.
