Program description

Early Childhood Studies - MA (Full-time)

Why study this course?

This distance-learning program is designed for professionals working within the early childhood workforce, including those who may not be working directly with children but are involved in developing the early childhood workforce, such as further education lecturers and local authority advisers.

Our course is a high quality, contemporary and coherent program that has been designed to meet the needs of professionals working within the early childhood workforce. The MA offers you an opportunity to advance your knowledge, understanding and professional practice through engagement with current research and thinking in early childhood. It also involves a reflection on, and analysis of, your own professional practice.

The early childhood studies team has a long history of developing an accessible study for the early childhood workforce. London Met was one of the first universities to offer an undergraduate program designed for those working within the early childhood workforce both as a face-to-face and distance learning program.The course is underpinned by the following aims to:

  • Develop a detailed understanding of current research and thinking in the field of early childhood
  • Appraise research and theory continuously and reflect on its impact on early childhood provision and practice with an emphasis on students’ own professional practice
  • Develop a sophisticated understanding of the historical, economic, social, cultural and political contexts which impact the lives of young children and their families
  • Develop a comprehensive understanding of, and commitment to, issues of equality and diversity, social justice and advocacy in relation to the field of early childhood

Admission requirements

You will be required to have:

  • A relevant honours degree (at least 2:2) and work within the early childhood workforce

Some of the modules require an observational visit to a setting offering care and education for children from birth to six-years-old. Where you're not working directly with children you will need to be able to commit to this component of the program.

All students are interviewed, but importance is also placed on the statement of application.
