This broad-ranging Education Studies (Hons) degree from Queen Margaret University will engage you in the wider socio-political issues that affect education on every level and how this in turn influences educational outcomes for children.

What you'll study

You will study contemporary issues in education, psychology and sociology to develop a sound knowledge base of human developmental pathways and the range of factors that affect them.

You will gain an understanding of how pedagogic theory and knowledge informs educational practice.

Through practical experience in educational and community settings you will learn how to build positive relationships with learners and work alongside other professionals. You will learn how to assess individual needs and plan inclusive learning experiences taking account of diversity and difference.

Over the four years you will develop your academic literacies including digital and data literacy. You will develop research skills to enable you to develop as an autonomous, critically thinking reflective professional.

This is a fresh, modern and ambitious approach to education studies. We hope you feel as passionate about this new direction as we do and look forward to receiving your application.
