Course summary

This degree immerses you in the social, political, cultural and economic contexts of early childhood in contemporary society. You will explore the development of children and youth as both a field of academic study and a focus for future employability. This is balanced with the analysis of social trends and the study of sociological developments and phenomena in cultural, political and historical contexts, achieved through a focus on social structures, institutions, orthodoxies, processes, organisations and groups we live our lives within. If you want to gain expertise in the inter-related fields of early childhood studies and sociology, keeping your options open for a wide range of potential careers, then this degree is for you. You will graduate equipped with a variety of transferable skills appropriate to reporting, presenting and working effectively on an individual and collaborative basis.
