Course summary

Education Studies modules specialise 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. History modules cover a range of cultures, centuries, wars and traditions, sampling the past from the classical to the modern period. The first academic year introduces you to a variety of historical periods and cultures and looks at the methods and nature of history as a discipline. Study focuses on research skills and knowledge that forms the basis of more specialised study in subsequent years – this includes learning how to use original documents to carry out research. This is both a rigorous academic degree and an excellent preparation for those wishing to take a PGCE, particularly for those wanting to teach History.
