Explore the social and cultural context of children’s lives across the world. Understand how communities influence the way children operate through their interactions with others. Evaluate the education, health and welfare services that support children. Develop your knowledge of ways to promote social justice and inclusion.

On our part-time masters course you’ll study the complex factors that affect children's lives and explore ways to positively influence their futures.

It’s designed for people working or volunteering with children and their families, across the education, health or social care sectors. Perhaps you’re in the police force and work with children or you’re a childminder in the private sector, or a volunteer with a community organisation.  

Through this course, you’ll examine your own ideas about children’s participation, agency and voice, critique your role in practice and investigate current research and theories. 

You’ll reflect on issues you’ve experienced in practice with your fellow students. For example, discussing challenges you face in regards to policy implementation, play, and family engagement, or how you explain the value of outdoor learning to staff in your team.

Your final assessment is typically a dissertation on a topic of your choice. You’ll usually conduct a small research project, which involves planning, conducting and evaluating practical research.

Past topics have included power relationships between adults and children, exploring the importance of play in education and the ‘schoolification’ of childhood.
