Overview Education at Cambridge The course at Cambridge is a rigorous and rewarding interdisciplinary degree. You follow one of three tracks, combining in-depth study of a particular field of interest with an examination of wider educational and social issues. The Education, Psychology and Learning track focuses on education from a psychological perspective; exploring human development and education in a variety of social and cultural environments. In Education, Policy and International Development you consider historical and contemporary discussions concerning these areas, and education’s role in economic and social change. Education, English, Drama and the Arts combines the study of drama and/or English literature with key issues in education, such as debates around creativity, learning and culture. Facilities and resources The Faculty of Education has excellent resources and state-of-the-art research facilities, including a psychology observation laboratory and a library that houses one of the UK’s best education collections. Active research forms the foundation of our teaching. You’re taught by academics who are at the forefront of their fields and who specialise in cutting-edge educational research. Professional qualifications and further study Our course provides excellent preparation for a wide range of Masters and doctoral research programmes, both at Cambridge – each track has close links to related MPhil programmes within the Faculty – and elsewhere. Alternatively, for those intending to teach, the course provides a foundation from which to proceed to some initial teacher training courses (eg a PGCE). Additional course costs There are no compulsory additional course costs for Education. Full course details are available on the Faculty of Education website and if you have any queries about resources/materials, please contact the Faculty (see fact file, right).
