What will I learn?

The degree is challenging and intellectually stimulating as well as enabling students to be critical and reflective on their own understandings of childhood, youth and the family. It is through encouraging students to reflect on their own and others values, beliefs and perceptions that allows them to have a much better understanding of wider societal issues that affect children, young people and families, thus contributing to their personal transformation not only as learners, but as future forward-thinking and autonomous professionals. The wider workforce needs professionals who have a sound understanding of what constitutes childhood and youth today, how they develop as well as how to meet the wide-ranging needs of children, young people and families in order to address any problems that may arise in their day-to-day lives. The programme aims to provide a rigorous academic grounding in children, young people and families, provide progression routes into a wide range of careers and prepare you for the rapidly changing contexts of policy and practice in education, social policy, health and welfare.
