Childhood and Youth Studies and Sociology

Sociology investigates social life and the way it shapes people's behaviour, beliefs and identity. Its subject matter ranges from examination of the face-to-face interactions of daily life to large-scale social institutions, social movements and global processes. By understanding the social world, we gain a better understanding of ourselves and our own social situations. For the Childhood and Youth part of the course, you would follow innovative modules led by experienced School of Education staff to develop your understanding of the history of childhood, children’s rights, the nature of childhood and the role of adults working with children in a national, European and international context. You would engage in academic study in the fields of psychology, sociology, social policy, education, health and welfare relating to children’s lives. This course course allows you to study Sociology as part of a joint honours degree (50% Sociology, 50% Childhood Studies and Youth). Sociology may also be studied through the medium of Welsh in the course BA Cymdeithaseg a Pholisi Cymdeithasol.
