Course summary

- Education and History achieved 94% overall satisfaction as rated by final-year undergraduate students in the 2019 National Student Survey- Explore the history of social and political change in combination with educational theory for a new generation- Engage with themes, issues and practices around education from antiquity to the present- Undertake placement options and work-based learning to enhance employability- Choose modules from an exceptionally broad range of topicsThese two complementary subjects have a huge influence on people’s lives and society as a whole. Our Education and History degree is an opportunity to study a long line of educational practices and ideas alongside a broad and revealing exploration of different cultures, wars and traditions of the past.The course goes far beyond teaching and learning: you explore a range of contexts from the classroom through to how education defines the world around us and is used as a lever for social and political change. You will learn things about the workings of society and education which will surprise you.The three-year programme examines education and policy in historical, sociological, cultural, political and philosophical contexts. You gain a deep understanding of education’s impact on gender, citizenship, childhood, family, technology and power. The course is both a rigorous academic degree and excellent preparation for those who wish to take a PGCE and become a history teacher, or to pursue MA routes, such as the MA Philosophy of Education.A Foundation Year is the perfect way to boost your academic skills, build your confidence and develop your wider subject knowledge so you can succeed at Winchester. This course offers an extra year of study at the start (Year 0) which leads onto a full degree programme (Years 1, 2 and 3).A Foundation Year is ideal if you are returning to education after a break; haven’t quite achieved the entry qualifications required; are wanting more support during the transition to studying at university; or are unsure about which subject you wish to pursue.In Year 0, you will study a set of modules from across the Faculty of Education which are designed to develop your academic and practical skills. This broader focus in your first year introduces you to studying at university level and provides you with a better understanding of Education and History and related subjects.You will experience a variety of teaching methods including lectures, discussion-based seminars and independent study. You will also receive support to boost your academic skills to prepare you for the rest of your time at Winchester. Find out more and hear from our Foundation Year students at winchester.ac.uk/foundationWhile the degree is theory-based you can select from optional volunteering modules in your second year that count towards academic credit.In Year 1, the focus is on coming to an in-depth understanding of key concepts and issues of the education process, and introductions to the well-known thinkers of educational theory. Your own experiences will be a key part of this learning effort. Core modules include Educators and Society, Reading and Writing History, and Creating and Consuming History.In Year 2, core modules focus on social, ethical and political thought in education. With a wide range of optional modules, you can pursue your personal and professional interests: like physical education, education and religion, technology and early childhood education. More specialised History modules focus on research skills and learning how to use original documents to carry out research as well as Education in the Holocaust, and the History of Teacher Education.In Year 3, you write a dissertation or complete an independent study project on a topic of your choice.
