Children's Studies - Structured

Over the four years, the programme will provide students with access to the expertise of a range of scholars in the field of Children’s Studies, as they develop their research ideas and enhance their research skills.

As part of the programme, students are expected to take discipline specific modules, generic skills modules and engage in their own research. Specific modules will be determined according to the research area of each individual student.
