Every generation faces unique challenges, so the journey from childhood to adulthood is constantly changing. Drawing on disciplines including sociology, education, psychology, social policy and youth studies, this degree explores the social, cultural, political and developmental contexts that affect contemporary experiences of childhood and youth. If you want to work with children and young people, from early years to later childhood and youth, this degree will enable you to explore the changing local, national and global situations which shape their lives and that of their families and communities. UK and European field trips, and work-based learning opportunities, are built into the course to help prepare you for a career in this sector.
