Overview

The Education (Hons) programme from Keele University aims to introduce you to many of the big questions concerning education and schooling both in the UK and also internationally. 

Why do we go to school? What should we learn? How should we learn it? What is the main aim of education? How is educational success linked to students' gender, race and socio-economic background? In looking at these types of 'big' questions and thinking historically, sociologically and philosophically, the course thinks critically about all aspects of education including primary, secondary and university levels. 

Whether you are intending to teach or just have an interest in education, this course will make you challenge your assumptions about learning and your own school experiences!  You will also have opportunities to explore these issues abroad by doing an International Year, which can lead to an enhanced degree title in ‘BA (Hons) in Education with International Year’.
