Program Description:

PURPOSE The International Child Studies MA is appropriate for professionals working in the statutory or voluntary sector overseas; those aspiring to work in the statutory or voluntary sector overseas who hold a first degree in a relevant subject; UK professionals working with a diverse population of children/young people. DESCRIPTION Underpinned by a theoretical framework of children's rights, this multi-disciplinary programme is designed to encourage students to take a rigorous academic and analytical approach to contemporary issues in childhood which are of relevance to those working or intending to work with or on behalf of vulnerable children. An understanding of sociological perspectives of multiple constructed childhoods is applied to a comparative study of global childhoods, and complements teaching on relevant law and policy, child development, and contemporary issues such as poverty, HIV, child trafficking and child protection. The curriculum is subject to change to keep up with policy developments.
