A degree in Education is a dynamic and stimulating opportunity to study the individual, social and political forces that shape education, no matter where it is found or how it is delivered. If you are interested in all aspects of how and why we learn, both formally and informally in the UK or abroad, then Education will challenge and excite you in equal measure.
The Faculty believe that every education graduate should be an engaged global citizen, able to actively research their areas of interest and be a lifelong, critical advocate for learning.
This combined honours degree provides you with the opportunity to enhance your studies in Education with a complementary subject.
Why choose this subject
Students will explore the contemporary context of education in its broadest sense and from a global perspective. Key themes which are explored in this year are, for example, the education of women, developments in technology and education and spirituality, and faith.
You will explore issues around learning and teaching, using a broad interpretation of the term to include, for example, lifelong learning and non-formal education. Students will also engage in the study of research methodologies and techniques and related ethical issues as a foreground for a major research component in their honours year.
You will study leadership and management of education from a sociological, philosophical, psychological or historical perspective. Alongside their academic development they will develop their own leadership skills.
The standard offer level is a minimum of 300 UCAS points, including a minimum of two A/A2 levels or equivalent. In addition, students will require Enhanced Disclosure from the Criminal Records Bureau.
