The Special Educational Needs and Disability Studies (Hons) programme of the Plymouth Marjon University is the perfect degree for those who have an interest in Special Educational Needs and Disability and would like to work with children, young people and/or adults who have special educational needs or are disabled, and their families and carers. The course has been designed by both academics and professionals working in disability and Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) contexts.
Our BA (Hons) Special Educational Needs and Disability Studies enables you to recognise the key elements of exclusion in society and provides you with the tools to challenge this. You'll explore a number of theories and models regarding disability which will give you the confidence and the knowledge to work towards a more inclusive society.
You will experience placements alongside taught modules, enabling theory to be put into practice. Sessions are delivered by professional practitioners to ensure that the degree remains up-to-date and relevant, as well as inspiring our students around potential careers and future research. We'll encourage you to explore disability policy and practice with critical reflection and curiosity.
What might you become?
Work in charities, healthcare and education settings; promoting equality and access; managing a care service. Many of our SEN graduates have continued in higher education commencing teacher training, training to become a social worker, a speech and language therapist and into other health professions.
The programme also prepares students for a route into teaching via PGCE and Schools Direct in mainstream and/or special schools and other educational settings or for other postgraduate training courses.
