About

From exploring feminism and queer theory to analysing the thinking of key philosophers, on this Early Years and Childhood Studies (Hons) course from Manchester Metropolitan University you’ll study the complex factors that affect children’s lives and explore ways to positively shape and influence their futures.

Overview

In each year of the course, you’ll learn about the different elements that impact on a child’s development. Studying subjects drawn from a range of disciplines, such as psychology, sociology, philosophy, and criminology, you’ll consider ethics, welfare, and the importance of policy and legislation relating to children, such as the Human Rights Act (1998). You’ll also learn about how childhood has changed over time both in the UK and globally and consider alternative perspectives relating to child development, including post-structuralism, socio-cultural theory and creative play.

You’ll reflect on your own experience of childhood and explore how it was shaped by society. You’ll also consider the diverse experiences of children, young people, families and communities and how policy on local, national and international levels affects children’s lives.

This Early Years and Childhood Studies (Hons) course from Manchester Metropolitan University will give you the opportunity to study for an Early Years Education Level 3 qualification alongside your degree. When you graduate you will receive a degree, and a Level 3 Early Years Educator qualification which meets the national requirements set by Ofqual.

Career

As a BA (Hons) Early Years and Childhood Studies graduate, you’ll have the opportunity to start a career in a wide range of areas working with children, young people and communities as a teacher, family support worker or youth and community leader. Or, you may go into creative play therapy at a local art gallery, work in a pupil referral unit helping those who struggle in formal education or even sports coaching.

You may even pursue a career in the voluntary sector, researching the latest trends in child learning behavior for a children’s charity.

During the course, you’ll spend time on placements and study option units to help you decide the career path you’d like to follow. Your personal tutor, along with our careers and employability team, will also support you with suggestions that match your strengths and career ambitions.

You may continue your professional development after your first degree. We have a range of postgraduate courses in the Faculty of Education including masters in education, educational leadership, and inclusive education. Some of our graduates also go onto study social work at masters level.
