Child Studies, master's programme - Second admission round (open only for Swedish/EU students)

Challenge conventional views on children and childhood.This master’s programme is interdisciplinary and focuses on the critical study of questions related to children and childhood.Courses explore various areas: children’s rights, parents and the family, education and school, migration, culture, the media, and health. You will deepen your knowledge of methodological approaches and theoretical perspectives in child studies. Our core focus is how to apply the latest research findings in order to critically review, develop and improve policies and practices related to children and childhood. The programme is hosted by an internationally renowned research department, which has conducted research in child and childhood studies since 1988. The teachers are active researchers, which guarantees that cutting-edge knowledge is presented. Online and on-campus trainingThe programme can be taken in one or two years and will prepare you for designing, planning and conducting research that concerns children, childhood and families. Each year is concluded with a 15-credits master’s thesis. The programme is primarily taught online with the aid of a digital learning platform, but there are three 2–5 days long on-campus periods in the first year and two in the second. This allows for some flexibility as to where and when you conduct your studies. The programme has high academic standards, however, and requires students to commit full time to their studies.Future opportunitiesGraduates who wish to follow a career in research via a doctoral degree will be well prepared through the programme. You can also follow a career within governmental authorities as well as local organisations, both governmental and non-governmental, whose activities affect children and their living conditions, or use the master’s degree to take your career in professional fields such as education, politics, social work and care to the next level.
