Cardiff Metropolitan University has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The study of Education Studies at Cardiff Met forms part of the BA Humanities and Education Joint Honours programme within the Cardiff School of Education.
Education Studies offers key academic preparation for graduates who wish to work in a wide range of settings related to education. It is concerned with understanding learning and education in England, Wales and beyond, from inside the classroom, the boardroom and the home, amongst others. The course team comes from a range of professional and research backgrounds and will provide an exploration of psychological, sociological, historical and contemporary issues within education. Students will discover what it means to be a learner; how education is supposed to meet the needs of individuals; how lifelong learning can impact and benefit communities and the challenges to education of overcoming poverty to improve life chances.
The subject offers a comprehensive overview of all aspects of teaching, learning and education – it doesn't just focus on primary and secondary classrooms. This means that our students leave us with a rounded and critical perspective of the education system – as well as key skills that employers value – meaning greater potential for career and training opportunities.
The Drama side of the degree introduces you to a range of theatre genres, playwrights and practitioners using both textual and practical exploration. You will be encouraged to consider the influences from which theatre is made, experiment with performance styles and analyse theatre practice. In addition you have the opportunity to develop your own skills as a theatre maker, as both performer and director.
You will also explore how drama can be applied to a range of community and educational settings, which will complement your work-based placement in year two.
