About

We encourage you to consider different aspects of education and where and how it happens – from early years, primary and secondary education to higher education and lifelong learning. You’ll look at educational processes, systems and approaches while exploring psychological, social, cultural, political and historical contexts.

Overall you’ll gain a deeper understanding of the aims of education and its role within society. The Education Studies Joint Honours course from the University of Derby examines how education theory relates to policies and practices, including Government policies. We also consider education from a student perspective, including motivation, learners’ differing needs and learner behaviour.

Careers

The benefits of a Joint Honours degree are that you can keep your options open, extend your career scope and build a flexible set of skills. It marks you out to potential employers as adaptable, versatile and well organised.

You can look forward to career opportunities in fields relating to education, social care, health care, careers and guidance, and the voluntary sector. You could also take your skills and knowledge to the next level with postgraduate study.
