Education Studies and Global Sustainable Development

Course summary

Education is essential in enabling a more sustainable future. It is a fundamental tool in the promotion and achievement of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, and Goal 4 specifically sets targets for Quality Education. This degree will allow you to examine the relationship between education and sustainable development and the associated challenges facing the education sector both in the UK and overseas. It represents a flagship contribution to UNESCO’s international Education for Sustainable Development (ESD) agenda. Are you passionate about examining the relationship between education, sustainable development, and the challenges facing the education sector? Are you enthused by finding new ways to promote learning about sustainability issues? This course seeks to prepare you to become a Global Citizen with a conscience, equipped with knowledge and understanding of the key issues of sustainable development from across a broad range of disciplines. Using a problem-based and solutions-focused approach, you will work with peers from other Global Sustainable Development (GSD) courses to explore complex issues, their implications and limitations and their inter-connectivity. We will encourage you to think critically and creatively about contemporary problems of global significance. You will explore ethically and morally complex areas in the search for positive interventions with a beneficial impact. Embracing new opinions from your peers across the world, we will challenge you to become an active participant in your own learning. You can enhance your skills and studies through optional work placements, study abroad, and certificates.
