Education Studies at Canterbury Christ Church University - UCAS

Course summary

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. Education Studies examines how people learn and develop throughout their lives, investigating how successful this is and exploring the impact education does or does not have on how we live our lives as individuals, communities, countries and cultures. This thought provoking and stimulating course gives you the opportunity to explore areas such as gender, race, equality and equity, politics, sustainability multiculturalism, pedagogy and representations of education in popular culture. From schools and universities to simply sitting at home watching YouTube videos, education happens in a wide variety of forms. This course covers many different aspects of education, and you'll study modules that will encourage you to think through big questions relating to the role of education in worldwide issues such as inequality and poverty. You'll gain a deep understanding of the key issues, policies and debates in education, while developing personal and professional skills. You'll examine education and learning in all its settings and contexts, and you'll become highly knowledgeable about the learning process and the purpose and function of education. You'll also have opportunities to get out of the University and look at ideas in practice in schools and elsewhere. You'll be supported to become an expert in understanding not just how people are educated, but also the role education plays in sustained and life-long change, particularly in matters of social justice, sustainability and the environment. On completion of the course, you'll be equipped to follow a rewarding career where you can make a positive impact (directly or indirectly) on education and people. Top reasons to study with us
