We offer an exciting interdisciplinary programme of postgraduate provision in Childhood and Youth that is underpinned by a commitment to integrated practice. The programme enables progression through a postgraduate certificate and postgraduate diploma to a full masters degree.
The programme will suit you if you’re a graduate professional working with children and/or young people, and you’re seeking to advance academically and professionally; or if you have an unrelated degree and are looking to move into the profession; or if you are considering moving between professions within the sector.
The programme is relevant to graduates working in early years provision, education, social work, nursing, healthcare, youth work, youth justice or the voluntary sector. It will be of particular interest if you have completed our BA (Hons) in Childhood and Youth Studies or our BA/BSC (Hons) in Health and Social Care.
The MA comprises two 60-credit compulsory modules that can be studied in any order: Children and young people’s worlds: frameworks for integrated practice (E807) and Critical practice with children and young people (K802). You will then need to study 60 further credits from a selection of optional modules or alternatively you can apply to transfer up to 60-credits from any other appropriate postgraduate course in this diverse field of study.
