Drawing on philosophy, sociology, history, psychology and politics, you’ll consider issues such as the role that gender can play in a child’s journey through education, the way education differs across national contexts, and how people learn in out-of-school settings such as museums, galleries and theatres.
You’ll also have the chance to get out into schools and other settings to see and experience education in practice.
Some of the ways you might learn include group work with your peers, debating topical issues in education and delivering group presentations. This is to help you develop the confidence to present to an audience, whether you’re speaking to a classroom and eight-year-olds, your friends or educational professionals. We want to make your experience as interactive and collaborative as possible.
As a graduate, you could develop your career across the education sector. You might work in prison education or museum and gallery education. You could also pursue a career in related areas such as education publishing or the local government. Or perhaps you’ll continue on to postgraduate study.
If you decide you’d like to become a teacher, you’ll need to complete a *PGCE or other training route (this is normally a one-year course). Depending on which units you choose at levels 2 and 3, you could study for a PGCE in secondary education, specialising in areas such as social studies or religious education.
*Whilst this degree course does not provide qualified teacher status, it can provide a good foundation to progress to a PGCE at a later stage. Those considering undertaking a PGCE should be aware of the specific requirements for this.
