The study of education aims to provide insight into how children and young people learn and the ways in which this is shaped and delivered. The BA (Hons) Education degree looks at learning and teaching through the four pillars of knowledge: philosophy, sociology, history and psychology.
The programme considers the different ways in which education is implemented and understood throughout the UK and globally. We aim to support our students to understand and question current and historical education systems and to consider how these systems align with policy, practice and social expectations.
Students will have the opportunity to consider education in compulsory schools and in other learning environments not associated with typical classrooms.
Research-based learning is an important part of this course and students will be encouraged to use enquiry and investigative approaches to learn more about education throughout their three-year study.
