About

Overview

Learning outcomes

  • The Early Years route will see you apply a critical lens to young children's education and care within a variety of settings. The Special Education - Early Childhood route at University of Saint Thomas Saint Paul will focus more closely on critically examining concepts, contexts and practice related to childhood.
  • We recognise that children are active social agents and meaning makers with the ability to both interpret and shape their social worlds. Therefore, each module has been designed to highlight the importance of the child's voice and children's participation.
