Crawley College’s BA (Hons) in Early Childhood Studies is a one-year full time programme, accredited by The University of Chichester.

It provides a progression for those students who wish to top up their Foundation Degree or equivalent qualification to a BA Honours.
The range of modules enable students to explore key aspects of childhood from the psychological and sociological, to the global and cultural, to the economic and educational.

Students will develop problem solving, critical analysis and independent thinking skills as well as gaining knowledge of areas which are of particular interest.
The degree equips graduates to explore a range of careers in the early years sector, as well as completing postgraduate qualifications, in order to work within the fields of health, education and social work.

The Early Childhood sector is rapidly changing and therefore it is vitally important that we listen to government and employers as well to make certain that you the students have the very best experience that will serve you well in your chosen careers. All members of the teaching team are practitioners with a wide range of experience as well as accomplished academics. We seek to bring new research alongside established theory into the classroom through a variety of blended methods including direct teaching, seminars, problem solving, activity based learning, adventure education as well as using up to date technology to engage with you across platforms.
