Overview

The Bachelor of Arts in Youth and Community Studies (Hons)  from University of Malta  seeks to respond and meet the needs of organisations and individuals engaged in youth work. Course participants will thus have the opportunity to develop the necessary skills and knowledge in preparation for the empowerment of young people through reflective youth work practice. 

Moreover, candidates are encouraged to adopt an evidence-based outlook to youth work practice and youth policy development, and to consider research and evaluation as vital characteristics of their practice.

These aims will be achieved through providing to participants with the opportunity to engage with various academic perspectives of young people in the community at large, and to build a thorough understanding of the myriad domains that influence the lived experiences of young people. In addition, experiential-based study-units – especially the fieldwork placements – are designed in such a way to enable students to link theory with practice.
