Education is one of our most powerful means of change and growth in the modern world. On the Education programme offered by the University of Cambridge, you follow one of three tracks, studying Education alongside your chosen field of interest, which will include the opportunity to study in other Faculties relevant to your chosen track.
The Education, Psychology and Learning track focuses on education from a psychological perspective, exploring human development and education in a variety of social and cultural environments. This track is accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS).
In Education, Policy and International Development you consider historical and contemporary discussions concerning these areas and education’s role in economic and social change.
Education, English, Drama and the Arts are the study of English literature with key issues in education – such as debates around creativity, learning, and culture – while giving you the option of studying practical drama.
The Faculty of Education has excellent resources and facilities within a purpose-built building, designed to support teaching, learning, and research. There are a psychology laboratory and a library that houses an extensive collection of material on education and related fields.
Active research forms the foundation of our teaching so you're taught by academics at the forefront of their fields and who specialize in cutting-edge research.
The career options for an Education graduate are extremely varied and they find employment in a wide range of occupations and fields in the UK and abroad.
Many have gone into academic research, educational psychology and neuroscience, publishing, teaching and the Civil Service, along with those now working in government policy and administration, journalism and the wider media, theatre, community arts, heritage and museum education, management and HR, business and consultancy, charities and NGOs, and international development.
Many graduates also pursue careers associated with their combination subject.
