About BSc Childhood Studies with Study Abroad

BSc Childhood Studies with Study Abroad at Bristol provides a truly interdisciplinary approach to the study of children and young people's lives from birth to 19 years of age. Within a framework of children's rights, it explores children's participation, their protection and the provision of services for children nationally and internationally.

The course is identical to the three-year BSc Childhood Studies. In years one and two you will build a solid understanding of social, psychological and historical constructions of childhood. Optional units will allow you to pursue different routes through the degree depending on your personal interests and potential career choices.

In year three you will be able to study overseas at one of our partner institutions before returning to Bristol in year four to complete your final year. 

You will benefit from the expertise of internationally renowned lecturers and researchers from a wide range of related disciplines, including education, sociology, psychology, social work, law, social policy and economics.
