Course Introduction

This degree gives you an understanding of the rights of children and young people and their role and status in society, enabling you to work with them in a rewarding career.

Taught by experts in the field, this programme uses sociology, psychology and history to explore childhood, and you will have opportunities to specialise in your chosen areas.

You will develop essential skills in recognising how the experiences of childhood and youth are shaped by class, race, gender, disability, sexuality, religion, poverty, region and nationality.

You can also study and gain experience within social enterprise. This rapidly growing sector, which pursues improvements to wellbeing through commercial strategies, is increasingly important in engaging with children and young people.

You will explore setting up your own enterprise, with the goal of graduating with a business created to help address some of the challenges that young people face
