MPhil in Childhood Studies aims to provide students with an understanding of the relationship between childhood and culture as well as the dynamics between economic, social and political conditions and children's livelihoods and welfare in different contexts.
The programme is open to both international and Norwegian students. Admittance to the programme requires a bachelor's degree in a social science or humanities discipline, or other equivalent education.
MPhil in Childhood Studies will be relevant for building a career related to children and childhood in different public sectors. This may include policy and planning for children's living conditions in ministries and institutions, both locally and internationally. Another important area is NGOs. Read interviews with our former students and see where they are now.
