Course summary

At Keele University, we’re proud to be consistently ranked in the Top 3 UK universities for student satisfaction, which is testimony to the safe, supportive and welcoming campus we hope you’ll soon call home.Education and Sociology provide the perfect combination if you are interested in the connections between education and societies. This research-led and interdisciplinary degree will enable you to explore the key social issues facing contemporary societies and to reflect on the role of education in our lives and futures.By taking this combined programme, you will study educational practices and processes from a variety of perspectives. You will define, describe and work with key concepts such as equality of opportunity, class, gender, marketization and social exclusion. You will learn to relate contemporary education policy to wider processes of global, economic, cultural and social changes and have opportunities to observe how these processes affect teaching practice by doing placements.The compulsory sociology modules will provide you with a grounding in the key areas of the discipline: inequalities, social theory, and research methods. Our programme also covers a wide range of topics including families, activism and protest, social media, globalisation, and belief systems. Studying Sociology will enable you to think independently, critically, and imaginatively about the issues that shape our everyday lives and our futures.Our graduates have the skills to enter occupations in a variety of fields. This can include careers in educational institutions, politics, the civil service or business. You might seek to develop a career in the creative industries, social care, the health sector, advertising and marketing, the charity sector, youth services, and the local government. Some of our graduates choose to pursue further academic study.If you are thinking about working abroad after graduation, you can gain an enhanced degree title that includes a foreign language competency - such as 'BA (Hons) in Education and Sociology with competency in German' by studying one of our foreign languages. Also, if you choose an International Year abroad, you can also graduate with an enhanced degree title, for example, 'BA (Hons) in Education and Sociology with International Year'.
