Bachelor of Arts with Children's Studies

University of Galway

Arts with Children’s Studies (GY110 – AWC) is the only degree in Ireland and Europe that enables students to combine an Arts degree with a specialism in Children’s Studies. It enables students to take two traditional arts subjects alongside Children’s Studies to Degree Level. The expertise acquired through a BA with Children’s Studies will assist students in identifying the career path that best suits their particular talents and ambitions.

It is the perfect platform from which to pursue careers in social care work, advocacy, the creative arts, education, and community development. It provides an excellent basis for post-graduate study in social work, play therapy, speech and language therapy, and primary and/or post-primary teaching, and our graduates are very successful in gaining entry to these competitive programmes.

Recent graduates are currently working in speech and language therapy, play therapy, social work, and public policy, as well as in teaching and educational support in Ireland and abroad. A unique feature that sets it apart from the other GY110 streams (ACS and APP) is that it allows students to study two teachable secondary school subjects, in addition to studying childhood, ideally positioning them to apply to the PME in post-primary school teaching.
