Course summary

The Sociology with Education programme (BASE) explores the social processes and educational contexts that shape and characterise learning and development in contemporary societies. As such, the Sociology with Education programme explores educational issues and cultural trends from multiple perspectives that range from the individual to the institutional, and from the local to the global. As a Sociology with Education student, therefore, you will develop the ability to analyse educational topics and social practices in critical and complex ways, drawing on the richness of multiple disciplines to do so. You will build the skills needed to follow your curiosity about, and challenge, commonly held assumptions about the ways societies work and the learning cultures that shape them. You will be enabled to make links between theory, policy and practice implications across the disciplines studied in the programme. As a graduate of the programme, you will be prepared for a range of careers in a variety of sectors – our previous graduates have entered the fields of educational research, consultancy, and adult education, as well as a wider range of professional areas, including publishing, the media, charities, law, primary school teaching and journalism. Whatever you choose as a career path, you will be in a position to apply rigorous empirical techniques, creative ways of thinking and culturally sensitive approaches to social and educational issues in your professional life and beyond.
