Childhood Studies

The aim of this specialization is to provide overview of the most recent scientific knowledge on development and education of children between 0-12 years as well as topics of cultural and social environment related to this development. Another important goal is to provide necessary methodological knowledge about current trends, approaches, methods, practical issues to study children, and use of this knowledge in a childhood study workshop.

Individual and peer-supported learning, thinking and working together, group work and projects play key role in the courses of the specialization. During the 2 years of MA training two big projects take place in the specialization: a research workshop and an institutional practice.

The specialization is recommended especially for educational professionals who are interested in theoretical and practical knowledge about development, care and education of children between 0-12 years.
