Designed for professional and personal development, as well as academic. We aim to enable our students to develop a multidisciplinary approach to childhood issues within the context of current policy developments. Students come from a variety of disciplines and professions including medicine, education, law, social care, psychology and sociology.
Underpinned by a theoretical framework of children's rights, this multi-disciplinary 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.
The curriculum is subject to change to keep up with policy developments.
