About

The MA in Woman and Child Abuse programme at London Metropolitan University is ideal for those who are working in specialised services for women and children who have experienced violence, in policymaking or delivery at local, regional or national levels, or anyone wanting to establish careers in these sectors.

Overview

Why study this  MA in Woman and Child Abuse programme at London Metropolitan University?

Supported by the internationally renowned Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit, the MA in Woman and Child Abuse programme at London Metropolitan University provides a solid grounding in theoretical frameworks, policy and practice approaches. 

The MA course content covers all forms of violence against women and child abuse, including sexual violence, domestic violence, sexual exploitation, trafficking and harmful practices. Reflecting the work of the Child and Woman Abuse Studies Unit, a specialist research unit, the degree focuses on what we know about these forms of abuse, the contexts in which they occur and the connections between them. While the main focus will be on the UK, intellectual, policy and practice approaches from across the globe will be discussed.

You'll find the course content to be cross-disciplinary, mainly drawing on sociology and including social policy, criminology and psychology.

After the course
