You'll develop an excellent understanding of what shapes children's personalities and behaviour, gathering theoretical knowledge of progress through the early years of a child's life and exploring what opportunities should be available for them to have the best possible chances in life to reach their full potential.
This degree offers the chance to explore a wide range of issues and theoretical perspectives relating to young children, from health, wellbeing and safeguarding to effective learning and development. You will explore how play is a vital component for young children's holistic development. You'll also examine the difficulties and problems children may face, from child protection issues to disability and specific needs.
Our course is UK-focused, yet draws on the international context. You'll also have the opportunity to explore education in other countries with our Study Abroad and placements programme, which will give you a distinctive edge if you want to enter the competitive international careers market.
