Course description

In Education Studies and Education Studies (Early Childhood) at Winchester we offer a vision of Higher Education which goes beyond the formal curriculum. This means we do not just aim to teach about education, although this is a fundamental aspect of our degree, but also to offer our students an intrinsically higher education. To this end, the intellectual, personal, social and ethical development of our students is at the heard of our programme and, we believe, deserves as much emphasis as becoming a specialist in any particular subject discipline. Putting our vision into practice means first, offering you the chance to challenge your exsisting ideas about education, society, the world, other and even yourself. Secondly, it requires lecturers to guide you and support you as you work through some of the most important and challenging thinking in education from the last 2,500 years.

Modules

Year 1: Principles in education; great educators (double module); 1944 and 1988 education acts; reflections of autobiography. Year 2: Education (social and political thought 1); education (social and political thought 2); power of the teacher; what is a child?. Year 3: Education policy; construction of gender roles in schools; philosophy of the teacher; dreamworld children.

Employment prospects for graduates of this subject

Sources: DLHE & HECSU
When you look at employment stats, bear in mind that a lot of students are already working in education when they take this type of course and are studying to help their career development. This means they already have jobs when they start their course, and a lot of graduates continue to study, whilst working, when they complete their courses. If your course is focused on early years education, a lot of these graduates go into nursery work or classroom or education assistant jobs; these jobs are not classed as 'graduate level' in the stats, but many graduates who enter these roles say that a degree was necessary.
