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.
The first year centres on introductory core modules which focus on learning, teaching, education and research skills. Students can reflect on the global and local influences on policy and practice and consider how this has shaped the ways children and young people are enabled to learn. A tutorial system operates throughout the three-year course. The first year aims to provide a sound basis for students to develop their own personal and academic skills and provides a sound basis for transition to second year. The course also includes a series of scheduled meetings with a personal tutor. In the second year, students have the opportunity to develop and refine their research skills and can begin to tailor their course to their interests by choosing two optional modules to examine topics in greater depth. Students take part in two core modules focusing on: historical and comparative approaches to education; and diversity, inclusion and alternate approaches to education. During the final year, students have the opportunity to complete two core modules, one which reflects on contemporary issues in education, and one which is an extended study. This extended research based module, along with further elective modules aims to provide opportunities for students to build on their own interests and may be determined by their career aspirations.
