Community Education at University of Dundee - UCAS

Course summary

Community Education (CE) embraces youth work, adult and family learning, and community development. CE professionals are committed to social justice, working to develop a range of learning and development opportunities determined by personal, social, economic and political needs. As part of this course you will undertake placements in community organisations for a large part of your learning, where you can engage with individuals and groups to help promote and implement positive social change. Starting with an exploration of the historical and philosophical foundations influencing current practice, you will develop an understanding of relevant policy and political ideas and how they relate to community practice. You will be encouraged to undertake an in-depth analysis of social justice, equalities, political perspectives, values, and socio-economic trends, while also enhancing your critical thinking and reflection. You will study community work theories to help you analyse and develop your own community work practice approach. You will also be encouraged to develop a critical understanding of CE values, principles, ethics, and competencies. The course reflects the current field of CE practice in Scotland, the UK, and worldwide and is professionally endorsed by the CLD Standards Council Scotland.
