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 interdisciplinary and it is open to both international and Norwegian students. Admittance to the programme requires a bachelor's degree in social science or in combination with a humanities discipline, or other equivalent education. We aim to establish an interdisciplinary student body, with students representing several different academic backgrounds.
We admit up to 15 students.
