Bachelor of Arts in Childhood and Social Institutions

This program focuses on the subject of childhood from an interdisciplinary perspective.  Thus, we look at childhood in sociological, anthropological, historical and geographical perspectives.  We discuss issues such as: what is the meaning of ‘childhood’? What competencies do children have? How is childhood framed in policy discourse, both local and global?  What are children’s views of the world that they live in?  

Topics covered in the program include:

  • The social study of childhood
  • Histories of childhood
  • Children’s rights
  • Advocacy with children
  • Children and the legal system
  • Social policy
  • Working children
  • Children’s everyday lives and social worlds
  • Child poverty
