Course summary

The BA in Education explores the field of education from a variety of perspectives. The education system is a major and increasingly significant part of modern society; this programme will encourage you to engage in critical reflection on the aims and values of education. Delve into a wide range of disciplines and fields, including psychology, sociology, social policy, politics, literature and history. You'll study how people learn; how education interacts with wider society; how politics affects what we learn and how we learn it. You'll explore how education is organised in different countries; and how modern education has been shaped by its historical roots. Alongside rigorous academic study, you'll gain valuable skills and experience with a range of opportunities for placements and volunteering. Your studies will inform and guide you, giving you practice applying educational theory to real-world situations. This course will not qualify you as a teacher. However, it is good preparation for a range of postgraduate initial teacher training courses. This course has been entirely redesigned, modernised and enriched by recommendations from our Decolonising the Curriculum group, so that our pedagogy and course content reflects the most cutting-edge findings in research and teaching.
