PLEASE NOTE THAT COMBINED HONOURS DEGREES ARE SPLIT 50/50. THIS MEANS BOTH SUBJECTS WILL BE STUDIED EQUALLY.

**Education Overview**

Studying Education is a dynamic and stimulating opportunity to explore the individual, social, and political forces that shape education, no matter where it is found or how it is delivered. If you are interested in all aspects of how and why we learn, both formally and informally, in the UK or abroad, then studying Education will challenge and excite you in equal measure.

Studying Education with Liverpool Hope will help you to develop academically as you engage with evidence and research, professionally as you link theory to practice, preparing you for a wide variety of work contexts, and personally as you think more deeply about your own values and aspirations. Your studies will bring education to life, tackling important questions such as ‘Can education help overcome inequality in society?’ and ‘How does modern technology transform the learning and teaching experience?’ It is structured around the four key disciplines of education: psychology, sociology, history, and philosophy. Each discipline provides a different lens through which key ideas and issues in education can be understood.

By studying Education with Liverpool Hope University, you will become a Hope Education Professional: inspired to put educational theory in to practice, able to critically evaluate current policy, and willing to make a difference in the world. The degree is an ideal foundation for those who decide to go on to train to become a teacher, and a variety of other professions, at Liverpool Hope University or elsewhere.

**Special Educational Needs Overview**

Studying Special Educational Needs (SEN) with Liverpool Hope University will enable you to understand the relationship between disability and education and provide you with the knowledge and confidence to educate others about the nature of disability. SEN incorporates insights from disability studies and education, as well as drawing on work in the arts, humanities and health care, to ensure you gain a broad and balanced understanding of education in a wide range of contexts.

A central aspect of the course is an understanding of medical and social constructions of Special Educational Needs and Disability, the legal requirements regarding provision for SEN/Disability and a critical understanding of past and contemporary practices. By completing your studies in SEN, you will have gained a knowledge and understanding of the global perspectives on special education and disability and issues relating to children and families, as well as having the ability to critically engage with professional expertise.

SEN with Liverpool Hope University is an interdisciplinary subject underpinned by the work of the Centre for Culture and Disability Studies (CCDS). You will become a professional who is knowledgeable and skilled in this field. You will enter your professional life recognising the importance of compassion and understanding in your work with, and on behalf of disabled people and those identified as having a special educational need.

**Mode of Delivery**

This is a full time course taking three years to complete and is delivered by a combination of face-to-face sessions, online sessions, and independent study. The face-to-face sessions are normally between 6pm-9pm on no more than two evenings per week, one evening per week for each of your two subjects at St Mary’s College. Online learning will allow more flexibility of location and may allow flexibility of timing.

In addition to lectures, seminars and workshops for your subject, there are support sessions to assist with academic writing, referencing, careers preparation and library skills.

On top of teaching hours, you are also expected to study independently for 30 hours each week, 15 hours for each subject, as well as studying in groups to prepare for any group assessments you may have.
