Do you aspire to work with children and young people? Whether working in teaching, Special Educational Needs and Disability, social work, educational policy or welfare, it begins with a degree in Education Studies. A degree in Education Studies will set you up for a career to work with children in a range of settings. The programme will give you the skills and knowledge for a range of careers including, teaching, social work, education policy, welfare and working with children and families. Throughout the degree, you will be taught using real-world case studies that are relevant to education. You'll explore the value and purpose of education and address key issues such as social justice and educational/social disadvantage. The degree will equip you with a range of transferable skills that are highly valued by all employers. You will be able to choose modules that include work experience opportunities. These placements will allow you to gain practical insights and apply what you learn to a professional setting. You will be taught by research-active lecturers, who are excited to share their passion with you. Their wide-range of specialisms include Special Education Needs, educational policy and inequalities in education. You will also attend workshops with industry professionals who will discuss key developments in the profession. You'll attend field trips across the UK in the 'Critical Perspectives in Childhood and Youth' module. You can also attend an international field trip as part of the 'International Perspectives in Education' module. These trips will give real-life context to your studies, linking the theory you learn to the world of work. In short, the study of History is essential, and at St Mary’s you will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of different historical periods, countries, and themes. You will immerse yourself in histories of Britian, Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and America, ranging from the medieval period to the present day. You will study the rise and fall of states, the causes of wars and revolutions, and social and political movements. You will be doing much more than learning what happened, you will be interpreting sources, explaining how and why societies change, and thinking about why that is important, and by doing this you will be equipping yourself to analyse the many challenges of today’s world. Studying History at St Mary’s will also give you the opportunity to develop skills such as conducting research, analysing evidence, and communicating your findings that employers look for in a range of careers. Our recent graduates have gone on to further study or to work in fields as diverse as law, finance, marketing, public relations, teaching, museums and heritage.
Assessments take a variety of forms including learning journals, portfolios, essays and case studies. You will also have the opportunity to undertake a piece of original research in your final year.
