Childhood and youth studies is one of the fastest growing disciplines in the UK; it’s studied by people who work with, or who are interested in the lives of, children and young people, both nationally and internationally. You don’t have to work with children or young people to study this module, but you should be curious about their experiences – including those of migration, disability, inequality and sexuality – as well as in their digital and spiritual lives. Based on cutting-edge research, this Children and Young People’s Worlds module from The Open University explores many different contexts of children’s and young people’s lives in a challenging and rewarding way.
The theoretical emphasis of this module makes it suitable for both those working with children currently and those who wish to do so in the future; and for those who are interested in understanding children’s and young people’s role in the contemporary world. Its emphasis on study skills and the support it provides make it an ideal first module in a masters programme.
