About

The  Child And Youth Studies programme at University West gives you a deepened understanding of the various conditions that shape, restrict and promote the experiences of young people.

Overview

The  Child And Youth Studies programme at University West offers a unique opportunity to understand the shared and divergent experiences of children and youth around the world, and the theoretical, methodological and practical tools to improve their lives. Theoretical knowledge from different disciplines and up-to-date research are the basis for the programme, which combined with multi-professional competencies and experiences provides a solid ground for working with child and youth related issues.

Career

After completing this programme, you will have increased professional competence to work strategically in different organisations and activities with a focus on issues relating to children and young people. While not a vocational programme, on graduation you’ll be prepared to enter or build on professional careers in the fields of education, social work and health, among others. 

Today, most of the professional work involving children and youth takes place in multi-professional teams or projects, and many alumni work for example as project leaders, experts and members of such teams. The programme also prepares you for future PhD studies.
