About the course

The Anthropology of Childhood, Youth and Education MSc was the first degree of its kind in the world when it was established and is still unique in its thoroughgoing anthropological perspective on what it is to be a child or to be young.

Its key organising principle is that understanding children requires the study of how their relations with others - peers, older and younger children, parents, teachers and other adults - inform their practices, identities and world views.

This course addresses the following issues from an anthropological perspective:

  • Do children of ‘different cultures’ live ‘different worlds’?
  • How does education impact upon children’s worlds and upon social and cultural practices more broadly?
  • How do everyday processes of learning – both formal and informal - help to shape children’s ideas of and engagement with society at large?
  • What is the role of schools in the transmission and acquisition of cultural values to children and youth?
  • And why are adults’ ideas about childhood and youth so important for what children learn and aspire to become?

The distinctiveness of this degree derives from an anthropological approach that focuses on the importance of children’s and youth’s perspectives, and on the role that education (formal and informal) plays in children’s learning processes and in the transmission and acquisition of cultural knowledge.

Anthropology at Brunel is well-known for its focus on ethnographic fieldwork: as well as undertaking rigorous intellectual training, all our students are expected to get out of the library and undertake their own, original research – whether in the UK or overseas – and to present their findings in a dissertation. Students take this opportunity to travel to a wide variety of locations across the world – see “Special Features” for more details.

Attendance for lectures full-time: 2 days per week - for 24 weeks
Attendance for lectures part-time: 1 day per week - for 24 weeks (in each of 2 years)

Aims

  • Through an examination of ethnographic cases from around the world (including the UK), you will learn about the different ways in which childhood and youth are understood and conceptualised.
  • You will explore the different educational forms and processes through which cultural knowledge is transmitted and acquired, and how culture impacts upon these processes.

Our research in the area of environment and health provides the foundations necessary to pinpoint preventable causes of ill-health and adversity and to underpin development of evidence-based primary prevention policies. A second important focus for our research is to understand the impacts of human civilisation on Earth's natural systems and the ecosystem services that support us. We are developing technologies and approaches to prevent and remedy pollution as well as to renew and restore degraded ecosystems.

The Environment and Health theme is one of the largest in the Institute of Environment, Health and Societies (IEHS); there are now more than 50 theme members whose research focuses on five areas:

  • Biological Pathways and Systems
  • Environmental Health and Ecosystems

Civil Engineering at Brunel is ranked 3rd in London (Complete University Guide 2018). 

 

About the course

Sustainability is a keyword for modern civil engineers and this BEng course in Civil Engineering with Sustainability provides an in-depth understanding of sustainable infrastructure development.

Drawing on an impressive body of pure and applied research engineers and scientists, we will introduce you to mainstream civil engineering knowledge, ranging from geotechnical site assessment to assessing and designing structures and environmental engineering.

You will explore the role of the engineer in current and future projects, following the sustainable ‘cradle to cradle’ approach called for by major institutions such as the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Institution of Civil Engineers.

Professional engineers working with major clients, consultancies and contractors are involved in bringing real world experience to the programme.

 

Aims

With the growing challenges to our infrastructure from rising populations, progressive urbanisation and economic development, climate change and the persistent risk of extreme events, the next few decades promise to be amongst the most challenging ever for the civil engineering community.

As a result, civil engineers need to draw deeply on their knowledge, skills and ability to innovate, to provide essential and sustainable infrastructure, including roads, bridges, tunnels, flood protection, and water supply and treatment systems.

The programme puts a focus on sustainable infrastructure, fully equipping graduates to play leading professional roles in industry and the wider local, national and global community.

It has been designed very much as a ‘hands-on’ learning experience. You will learn fundamental theory, and then have the opportunity to test and apply much of that theory through design in the laboratory, using advanced software, and during field work. You have the opportunity to pursue a valuable work placement and a major individual project in your final year.
