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.
