Skills and Careers Information
As the only qualification of its kind in Ireland, graduates are uniquely qualified in the areas of child law and family law. As well as allowing legal professionals to specialise in these areas of legal practice, graduates of this degree are well equipped to work anywhere in the children’s sector – with government departments and agencies (in education, child protection, youth justice etc.), with non-governmental organisations (both nationally and internationally), or other bodies who work with children. Few statutory or children’s organisations have staff with legal expertise in the child and family law area and this is a significant gap in the sector.
The Sociology of Childhood and Children's Rights MA will introduce students to a range of contemporary social theories about childhood and children's rights, critically explore social constructions of childhood, and consider the implications these have for professional practice and research with children and young people.
This programme provides students with the opportunity to gain an understanding of sociological theories and concepts of childhood and children’s rights, including a recognition of the varied childhoods experienced by children in richer and poorer contexts and how these are shifting in a globalising world. It also helps students develop their critical analytical skills and improve their theoretical understanding and professional practice when working with, and for, children.
Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.
The programme consists of three core modules (90 credits), one optional module (30 credits) and a research dissertation (60 credits).
Researching Childhood is the recommended optional module to help prepare for the MA SCCR dissertation.
All students undertake an independent research project which culminates in a dissertation of 20,000 words.

This MA explores cutting-edge research and theorising about young people's experiences and their social status in varied global contexts. It is unique in its sociological attention to childhood, children's rights, and children and young people's participation in society.
Students are introduced to internationally-renowned academic experts and international children's organisations and have the opportunity to explore their own areas of interest or professional practice.
The MA is based in UCL Social Science which houses three prestigious, research intensive units. Together they provide a foundation for world-leading work in childhood studies, social work, social pedagogy, families and health-related studies with a strong professional dimension.
The development of respect of the natural world is one of the young child’s education rights, under international law, therefore a child rights-based methodology is required. As there is a dearth of research using a rights-based approach with young children, this study proposes to draw on existing models, developed by Lundy and McEvoy (2011) and Shier (2016) and Clarke and Moss (2007) which will be contextualised to Early Childhood Education and Care contexts in the ROI. This study will, in the first instance, explore young children’s perspectives and engagement withthe outdoors, using rights-based, participatory and creative methods, while the role of the adult, as the duty-bearer under the UNCRC, in realising this right, will be explored using semi-structured interviews and focus group discussions. The proposed study will be located mainly in the interpretivist paradigm and the data collected will be analysed thematically. A convenience sample of potential research sites will be identified early in the study and access will be sought. The project will apply rights-based principles, alongside the research code of EECERA, and will strictly adhere to IT Carlow’s Ethics in Research Policy (2017).
A mixed -method research design with two phases, consisting of a specially designed online questionnaire in the quantitative phase, and a series of focus group discussions and semi-structured interviews in the qualitative phase. Data will be analysed thematically and statistically, and the study will adhere strictly to IT Carlow’s Ethics in Research Policy (2017) and other research sites as appropriate. The proposed participants will be mentors who provide supervised professional practice opportunities for ECEC year 2 and 3 students at Institute of Technology Carlow, and another Institute of Technology

Environmental changes, ageing populations, the media and new technologies, asylum and migration, intergenerational justice, complex multilevel governance arrangements, the impact of trade and investment, poverty and inequalities, the rise of identity politics and the changing nature of the personal sphere are contemporary global challenges facing human rights calling into question the fundamental tenets of human rights law both in terms of its formulation and implementation through policy development and law-making.
Differentiated from existing LLMs, the LLM Human Rights explicitly focuses on these contemporary challenges and how best to respond to them though law, policy and practice. The Human Rights programme draws on the research strengths in the College of Law and Criminology, but also from other colleges, in its teaching; and, exploits strong relationships with external partners to integrate a distinctive applied focus to the Human Rights programme.
Students pursuing the LLM Human Rights will benefit from a programme designed around high calibre research and impact in human rights. Human Rights students will also benefit from academics' strong relationships with external partners working in the field of human rights, giving the programme a distinctive approach centred on the implementation and application of human rights.
The focus on implementation and practice in human rights is complemented by a multidisciplinary approach. Human rights policy and practice often do not recognise disciplinary divides. The Human Rights programme allows students to experience teaching from other disciplines to enhance their knowledge and understanding of human rights as an integrated project (e.g. politics and international development).
Uniquely the Human Rights programme addresses diverse challenges in human rights faced by law and policy, and by practitioners at the global, regional, State and sub-State levels. The approach focuses on how these challenges might be effectively managed through law and policy. The Human Rights programme offers:
- The opportunity and choice to address a range of human rights topics and challenges across a number of thematic areas, with teaching by expert researchers in the field.
- A multidisciplinary approach reflecting the reality of human rights in practice.
- A practical and practice focused philosophy.
The LLM Human Rights is a modular programme, with students required to accumulate 180 credits to graduate. In appropriate circumstances a student may graduate with a merit or distinction. Each programme is divided into two parts:
