Course Summary

Education Studies at Winchester specialises in looking at educational themes, ideas and practices in the widest possible sense through educational theories and philosophies. You explore a range of contexts from the classroom and the learner’s experience through to education as a lever for social and political change. Theoretical perspectives are drawn from themes which include gender, citizenship, representation, truth, power, childhood and inclusion. Modern, philosophical, cultural, social, psychological and historical perspectives are all used as analytical tools to help examine educational debates and a wide variety of educational themes and concepts. You interrogate the educational process as a whole and seek answers to questions about the purpose, value, misuse and difficulties of education and learning. Complementing this, Drama has a contemporary focus but reviews the histories and traditions of theatre and performance, and interrogates what is meant by these in the twenty-first century. The extent to which drama is a tool for social change, and how it can be used within the educational system to enhance learning, can be explored. Approaches to staging, devising theatre, and applied and community drama are explored in relation to various theories including theatre histories, social and cultural perspectives, major movements and theatre practitioners. In the first academic year, Education Studies modules introduce you to a wide range of educational themes, concepts, ideas and issues. Drama modules offer you insight into the history of drama, the context in which dramatic production has taken place, how to make theatre, the political underpinning of texts and practices, and the ways in which texts and performances are viewed and interpreted. In subsequent years, Education Studies modules develop your knowledge of a variety of educational theories and perspectives to enable you to apply a range of concepts, ideas and theoretical perspectives as tools for critical analysis and application to practice. Drama modules extend your practical and critical skills leading you to emerge as independent learners. The Group Project allows you to create small companies to make a major performance or develop an applied Theatre-in-Education project. You may also elect a specialist option focused on staff research interests.
