Course detail

- Description -

Underpinned by a theoretical framework of children's rights, this multidisciplinary programme is designed to encourage students to take a rigorous academic and analytical approach to contemporary issues in childhood which are of relevance to those working or intending to work with or on behalf of vulnerable children. An understanding of sociological perspectives of multiple constructed childhoods is applied to a comparative study of global childhoods, and complements teaching on relevant law and policy, child development, and such contemporary issues as poverty, HIV, child trafficking and child protection.

Our curriculum is subject to change to keep up with policy developments.

- Course purpose -

Our MA International Child Studies is appropriate for professionals working in the statutory or voluntary sector overseas; those aspiring to work in the statutory or voluntary sector overseas who hold a first degree in a relevant subject; and UK professionals working with a diverse population of children/young people.

Full-time students take all 180 credits in one academic year. Part-time students normally take all four taught modules in year 1, and research methods training and the dissertation in year 2.

The programme provides students with a thorough introduction to current research, theory, principles and practices in English language teaching. It enables students to acquire a range of practical skills for teaching English as a second/foreign language, and prepares students to develop the capacity to engage independently and critically with current language teaching and research issues. It will provide students with basic research skills to investigate language learning, and help students to develop their individual pedagogic approaches by reflecting on practice.

- Course format and assessment -

Students take all of the core modules and choose 30-50 credits of optional modules.

Assessment is by coursework assignments, a presentation and a dissertation which is based on a small-scale research project. There are no examinations.

Career prospects

The MA prepares graduates for a professional career in English language teaching, a research-oriented career, or a mixture of the two.
