International Childhood Studies (MSc 2009/10 entry)
This programme will be of particular interest to anyone working with or intending to work with children in service provision or policy development, particularly in culturally diverse settings, or who has an interest in cultures of childhood.
The MSc International Childhood Studies aims to:
· Provide students with a critical historical and international perspective on the construction of childhood.
· Enable students to understand childhood as a site of social inequalities that are racialised, classed and gendered.
· Provide students with the skills to produce high-quality independent research.
The programme is made up of two core modules and two option modules and a dissertation.
The two core modules are Social Studies of Childhood: key concepts and issues; and Political Economy of Childhood. Option modules include Visual Cultures of Childhood and Children, Rights and Childhood (School of Law). Relevant option modules may also be taken from the School of Psychosocial Studies with the agreement of the Programme Director. Dissertation research in a relevant field is agreed with the Programme Director. Classes in Research Methods for Dissertation are taught with the Msc Development Studies which gives students an opportunity for academic exchange with students working in the development sector.
Lectures, seminars, presentations and tutorials.
Most assessment is by course work including critical annotated bibliographies and essays. Social Studies of Childhood is assessed by an unseen written examination paper.
