About This Course
Our ability to learn, educate and teach is part of what makes us human. It allows us to change not only ourselves, but also our organisations and societies. Quite simply, education can change the course of history.
On this course, you’ll gain the knowledge, understanding and expertise you need to understand education within schooling and other educational contexts. You’ll study the different approaches and contexts to learning and how we develop as lifelong learners. Outside of the classroom you’ll study the role of education within societies and cultures, and the interplay between education, childhood, adolescence and lifelong learning.
You’ll also spend a year overseas, widening your perspective on education or studying a different but related discipline.
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'll 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 the relationship between education and the media. 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 third year, you’ll study abroad for a year before returning to UEA for your final year. You’ll be able to choose from a range of universities across North America, Australia and New Zealand.
In your final year you’ll complete a research project on a topic of 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 you have the opportunity to develop the attributes employers value. These skills, which include writing, teamwork, communication, presentation and problem solving, will enhance your self-confidence and employability.
