About BSc Childhood Studies with Management

This course uniquely combines childhood studies, the social science of childhood and adolescence, with management, examining the economic, political and social environments in which businesses and other organisations operate to provide services for children and their families.

Two thirds of this degree considers childhood within a framework of children's rights, exploring their participation, protection and the provision of services for children, both nationally and globally. The remaining third focuses on management, introducing you to principles of business management, accountancy, marketing, corporate social responsibility and business law.

This combination provides a strong grounding in the skills needed to be effective leaders in business management, especially within the field of children’s services. You will develop a range of transferable skills including critical thinking, workload management, IT skills and research skills.
