T​​he 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.

T​​he English element of the degree will engage with your enthusiasm for reading and literature and introduce you to advanced critical thinking in the form of theoretical practice. You will analyse a wide range of texts (including film and digital narratives) to explore the cutting edge of English as well as its canonical texts.​ A mixture of thematic and chronological modules ensures a good grounding in genre, context and period. You will challenge assumptions about the production of narratives and their relationship to questions of authority and identity. The degree has a strong contemporary focus and provides highly valued employability skills. Modules are taught by a research active team (including Dr Carmen Casaliggi and Dr Elizabeth English) who have research interests in Romanticism, Modernist and Contemporary Literature, gender and sexuality, women's writing, children's literature, fantasy literature, science and literature, with specialisms in the work of John Ruskin, DH Lawrence and J. R. R. Tolkien.
