Course overview

The Education Studies degree takes you on a journey from an understanding of your past education, to a deeper understanding of what education and being educated might mean. Particular phases of education (eg primary, higher, lifelong), are used to focus discussions through three broad strands: educational practice and its underlying bases; the nature of the relationships between the individual and education; and the societal contexts of educational provision. Throughout the three years, we will help you engage with each of these strands in local, national and global contexts.

Level 1 introduces you to studying key issues in education in their historical and current contexts. At the same time, you will study key influences on the education of the individual and how these affect identity. Level 2 moves your study on to consider education and curriculum in terms of engagement with difference, and education in its societal and global contexts. Level 3 acts as a pinnacle to your study. You will explore the individual, and collective, against a background of inclusion whilst undertaking your Dissertation.
