Education Studies If you are passionate about how education has shaped your life and wider issues facing the world, and believe it is vital to address topics such as sustainability and social justice, then Education Studies is for you. Our course explores some big questions underpinning education and will engage with the issues that influence approaches to learning. You will compare education systems in a variety of countries and cultures to build an understanding of how people learn and develop throughout their lives. Education Studies gives you the opportunity to explore areas such as gender, race, equality, politics, multiculturalism, pedagogy and representations of education in popular culture. Religion, Philosophy and Ethics Religious, philosophical and ethical concerns often feature in the media and underpin a range of controversial issues in the world we share. If you like thinking about and debating these subjects then you’ll enjoy this course. You’ll be taught by an experienced team of academics who have published widely on topics such as Buddhist philosophy, conflicts over Jewish identity and interfaith dialogue.
