Discover what shapes children's behaviour and their sense of identity
Many thrive whatever their circumstances; others find life more difficult to manage. As a graduate of Childhood Studies you can make a difference to children's early experiences.
Childhood studies is a vibrant and exciting field which has expanded in recent years to include knowledge from psychology, sociology and psychoanalysis. This course lays the foundations for a career working with infants and children, whether in education, health care or children’s services. You gain a solid understanding of child development, the ecology of childhood (the place of children in different societies) and many other exciting topics.
"This course offers a solid academic understanding of childhood from a range of perspectives. You gain a placement experience in each year, knowledge of contemporary issues like ADHD, ASD and trauma, and you benefit from our distinct psychosocial and psychodynamic approach giving you real insight into the inner world of the child and the skills you need to work with them. You’ll be taught by lecturers who bring both academic and practical knowledge and experience from years of working with children."
