The PhD in Child and Youth Research is a four year full-time or six year part-time structured PhD programme delivered as part of collaboration between the School of Psychology and the UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre (CFRC) at the School of Political Science and Sociology.

This interdisciplinary programme responds to an identified need for researchers with the requisite, high-level and wide-ranging experience and skills to undertake the kind of work that is needed in an evidence-informed policy environment.

The programme combines thesis and taught modules. All students must complete a major dissertation (c.80,000 words). The taught modules which are delivered in years one and two provide course participants with the opportunity to widen their knowledge and skill base as well as feeding into the development of their thesis work.

A wide range of topics are covered including:

  • Children’s rights
  • Child protection
  • Working with Commissioners
  • Randomised controlled trials in applied social settings
  • Social context of child development (role of family, peers, culture)
  • Pro-social behaviour and risk-taking in young people
  • Masculinity and emerging adulthood
  • Theories of child development
  • Early years provision
  • Spaces and places of childhood
  • Political Theory, Children, and Young People
  • Participatory Research Methods with young people
  • Sociological perspectives on childhood

Programme aims

  • To prepare programme participants to conduct high quality policy and practice-relevant research and programme evaluation with children and young people
