Education is a flexible interdisciplinary programme which allows you to explore what it means to be educated in childhood and beyond; how learning relates to different social, political and economic contexts, to the arts and the development of the human mind. Our course allows you to explore these themes across academic disciplines, or develop specialist knowledge in areas such as psychology, international development, or literature and theatre. Creativity, contemporary research and global dimensions are key to this critical understanding and the programme has a particular focus on nurturing independent, reflexive inquiry through the development of critical research skills.
How to apply
