Education and History Keele University


At Keele University, we’re different. Nestled in 600 acres of countryside in the heart of the UK, we have a big campus but a small and cosmopolitan community. We’re proud to be ‘University of the Year for Student Experience’ in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2017, in addition to having been ranked No.1 in the National Student Survey 2014-2016. This is because it’s more than green and lovely, it’s a place of research and academic excellence too.

At Keele, studying a combined honours degree will include some modules from both of the single honours degrees. In this case, your programme will be made up of a combination of modules from both Education and History.

Education and History fit well together. You will learn the skills of the historian as you deepen your understanding of eras, continents and cultures from political,
social and religious perspectives, whilst exploring the ways in which education has been central to social and political change around the world. You will study educational topics such as the nature of learning, the history of education, and changes to educational policies and practices.
You will explore the ways in which education has been central to social and political change around the world. Alongside this, you’ll develop an understanding of different approaches to history, developing a range of methods used in their pursuit. You will take classes with internationally known experts and have a lot of
flexibility and choice to specialise in the areas that most interest you.

When you graduate, as well as the opportunity to pursue further academic study you might choose to do a PGCE and become a teacher or lecturer. Students who have studied these disciplines have entered a wide variety of careers including local government, media and communications, sales and marketing, banking, and the legal profession. There are also opportunities to work in museums, art and community centres. If you are thinking of a career in teaching, Keele’s Language Centre offers a variety of language courses. You may graduate with an enhanced degree with foreign language competency or an internationally recognised qualification in Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL).
