Young lives, parenting and families

Is this a good time to be young? What does it mean to be a child or young person today? How is childhood and youth, parenting and family life, shaped by society, politics and economics? How are young lives influenced by gender, ethnicity, disability, sexuality and geography? This module takes an interdisciplinary approach to examining these issues, drawing on a range of data, debates, analysis, research and practice. It will develop your study and employability skills and provide you with opportunities to debate issues with academics and other students.
