Programme structure

One academic year (equivalent to 60 credit) consists of 40 study weeks, divided in two
semesters. Each study week equals 1.5 credits and corresponds to 40 hours of study. The
program consists of four mandatory courses of 15 credits (in total 60 credits), including a thesis
course; a systematic literature review in the field of the student’s specialization. The courses
offered at Jönköping University are in collaboration with School of Health and Welfare and
School of Education and Communication.

The overall goal of the master’s program is to provide a qualified education from an international
perspective in the field of interventions to children in need of additional support due to health
condition, disability, poverty, or at risk for social or other reasons.

The master’s program is grounded in an ecological perspective on child development, learning,
and functioning. Influences are observed at different levels, “from neurons to neighborhoods”. A
critical perspective focusing on the individual, the environment, and their interrelationship, is
emphasized. A bio-psycho-social model is used as a frame of reference and the connection
between research and practice is stressed.

More specific, the goals are that the students acquire:
an overview of the ecology of childhood intervention in an international perspective,
theoretical understanding about child development and intervention processes providing
possibilities for critical examination and analysis of models for intervention and application
of those,
an understanding of major theories and current research related to intervention processes
including a focus on the connection between theory and practice,
basic knowledge in general system theory, and the abilities to relate it to children’s health,
development, and learning in different environments, and
knowledge about research methods, and especially methods useful in in the field of
research on interventions in childhood.

Career opportunities

The programme is designed to provide students with a good background for doctoral education, and for leadership roles in early childhood education and care, school-systems, early intervention/habilitation, special education, child healthcare, social services or other child-related organisations.
