<div><p>Childhood and youth studies is one of the fastest growing disciplines in the UK; it's studied by people who work with, or who are interested in the lives of, children and young people, both nationally and internationally. You don't have to work with children or young people to study this module, but you should be curious about their experiences ? including those of migration, disability, inequality and sexuality ? as well as in their digital and spiritual lives. Based on cutting-edge research, this module explores many different contexts of children's and young people's lives in a challenging and rewarding way.</p></div>
