Keele University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
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 Philosophy.
Education and Philosophy make the ideal combination if you’re interested in the philosophical basis of education and the moral and ethical aspects of ideas, policy and learning. Philosophy at Keele teaches you to ask questions and think critically about the world, encouraging you to formulate your own ideas clearly. This combination allows you to study educational topics such as the nature of learning, the history of education, and policies and practices that aim to promote justice and equality. Our Philosophy programme will provide you with a grounding in key questions about ethics, knowledge and the nature of the world, and enable you to explore a range of contemporary and historical philosophical works.
You will study educational topics such as: race and politics in education, poverty, digital technologies and gain comparative perspectives on education in the past, present and future. Philosophy topics will investigate central themes such as moral philosophy, epistemology and political philosophy, considering key philosophical problems and the various solutions proposed. You’ll enhance your logical and critical thinking skills, developing the use of sound arguments while detecting fallacies and other argumentative weaknesses.
The course provides a superb grounding in understanding the way people think and approach problems. You will possess highly developed skills in critical thinking and exploring multiple approaches to problem solving, both of which are highly prized by employers. You could pursue a range of careers, or continue to further study. You might go into education, the law, finance, government, publishing, the media or the arts.
