Course Overview

NUI Galway offers three exciting programmes dedicated to Children’s and Youth Studies, an interdisciplinary area, which examines the social, cultural, legal, psychological and historical discourses shaping the lives of children and youth today. The three programmes have been designed to provide graduates with different skill sets and academic knowledge. It is important to familiarise yourself with the differences between these programmes and make an informed choice about which one best suits your aspirations. 

HELPING YOU MAKE AN INFORMED CHOICE ABOUT OUR ARTS (CHILDREN AND YOUTH STUDIES COURSES)

• If you just want to study ‘children’ along with two other traditional Arts subjects and progress to secondary school teaching for example, among other careers, maybe Arts with Children’s Studies is for you.

• If you want to study ‘children’ at an indepth level over four years in a degree that is practice based and pursue a career in primary school teaching for example, among other careers, maybe Arts (Children’s Studies) is for you.

• If you want to study Children, Youth and Family at an in-depth level over four years, at the UNESCO Child and Family Research Centre (www.childandfamilyresearch.ie ), the University’s flagship institute for Applied Social Science, undertake a nine-month long work placement and be ready to take up employment upon graduation in youth work, child welfare and other areas, maybe Arts (Child, Youth and Family: Policy & Practice) is for you.

An examinable portion of a subject or course, for which you attend lectures and/or tutorials and carry out assignments. E.g. Algebra and Calculus could be modules within the subject Mathematics. Each module has a unique module code eg. MA140.
Subject
Some courses allow you to choose subjects, where related modules are grouped together.
