Childhood Studies degrees
My name is Nadia Aghtaie and I am the programme director for the Childhood Studies programmes. We are looking forward to welcoming you to the course and hope that you are excited about the prospect of studying with us.
At our first meeting in Welcome Week we will give you a copy of Michael Wyness (2018) Childhood Studies, Culture and Society in a Global Context. We think this is an excellent introduction to thinking about Childhood Studies as an academic discipline. Meanwhile, if you would like to start reading, we would recommend the following text which you might find interesting: Karen Wells (2017) Childhood Studies: Making young Subjects. Cambridge: Polity.

Clicking on a unit name will take you to a page that describes each unit; what you will know when you have successfully completed it (learning outcomes), teaching and assessment details and a further list of recommended reading and references.
If you are taking BSc Childhood Studies with Management or BSc Childhood Studies with Quantitative Research Methods, then you are not required to choose any optional units.
