Education and English at Edge Hill University - UCAS

Course summary

Education and English go hand-in-hand. Explore education across all age ranges while expanding your knowledge of the expressive resources of the English language and examine literary texts with a critical eye. Explore education through the different lenses of history, philosophy, psychology and sociology in our education and English degree. At the same time, study specialist modules to unravel the development of English language and literature. Education is an engine for social justice, tackling inequality and championing diversity. But why do schools and university systems exist as they are? And what influence have past governments had? Our experts will help you answer these questions and explain how teaching has evolved. Throughout your degree, you’ll build an understanding the UK education system and compare it to the rest of Europe and beyond. We’ll also introduce you to key thinkers at the forefront of education policy and practice. Shape your English studies around your interests. As well as covering key topics like structure and grammar, and the history of English, you’ll choose from a wide range of language and literature modules.
