On this course you’ll study the role of education within societies and cultures, as well as how schools and other educational settings shape our lives. You’ll address different approaches to education. You’ll also examine the ways people learn across a wide range of educational institutions, both in the UK and beyond, including in primary schools, secondary schools, museums and charities. And you’ll examine how education, childhood, adolescence and lifelong-learning interrelate.
Throughout your degree you will examine cutting-edge issues in educational theory, practice and policy, with reference to a range of national and international settings. You’ll discover topics such as education as an academic discipline, international education and learning, and teaching in the digital world. You’ll explore developmental, moral and social issues in education. All this will be underpinned by the history, philosophy, psychology and sociology of education.
You’ll also have the chance to gain first-hand experience of educational settings such as schools, museums, prisons, charities, and management throughout your degree. This will help you draw links between theoretical approaches and real-life examples.
In your final year you’ll complete a research project on a topic pf your choice under the supervision of a lecturer who’s actively engaged in research in that area.
Throughout your studies, key skills learning is integrated to ensure that you have the opportunity to develop the attributes that are valued by employers. These skills, which include teamwork, communication, presentation and problem solving, will enhance your self-confidence and employability.
You’ll benefit from research-led teaching as well as a favourable student to staff ratio. In the National Student Survey UEA is placed 1st for overall satisfaction out of all UK universities for Academic Studies in Education (NSS 2017).
