About BSc Childhood Studies with Study Abroad

This course focuses on policy and the rights of children and young people from birth to 19 years, exploring contemporary debates within a global context. Our research-based teaching includes the expertise of lecturers from related disciplines, including education, psychology, sociology, social work and law.

Years one and two are identical to the three-year BSc Childhood Studies course. In the first year you will develop a solid understanding of the social, psychological and historical constructions of childhood. In subsequent years you can choose optional units from a wide range of subjects, allowing you to pursue different routes through the degree to develop the career path that is right for you.

In year three you will be able to study overseas at one of our partner institutions before returning to Bristol to complete your final year. Visit Global Opportunities to find out more about where you can study abroad.

The interdisciplinary nature of this course makes it ideal for students from a range of different backgrounds who want to develop a holistic understanding of childhood. Our graduates go on to careers in areas as diverse as education, children’s therapy, social work, law and social justice, children’s charities, government and the civil service.
