This programme introduces the key issues and decision-making processes that impact on young people’s lives across contexts including education, leisure, training and the labour market, housing and household information.
Why this programme
The programme is aimed at early and mid-career professionals who wish to explore how young people's lives are changing in modern societies and the ways they are affected by the processes of social change.
You will be taught by researchers in the field of youth and young adults and have experience working with organisations such as the UN, the Council of Europe, the European Commission, UK local and national government and the Scottish Government.
You will study the contexts and factors which impact on young people's decision-making related to for example education, training, work and leisure.
The programme also provides a strong basis for further study, focusing on international and UK perspectives of youth.
It is of further value to students who wish to gain an insight into different groups of young people such as those with mental health issues, teenage parents, young carers, homeless young people and those looked after by local authorities.
