Course summary

This new flexible degree in Education and Social Policy gives you the opportunity to learn more about the challenges facing society by combining a range of relevant social and educational subjects, enabling you to consider these in various international and comparative contexts.Combining these areas provides opportunities for those who wish to work in professions associated with education, but who don't wish necessarily to become teachers. It is designed for students who are looking for choice and flexibility in their studies, or who don’t want to commit to one career path at the start of their studies. Please note that this course doesn't allow you to qualify as a teacher, but it will equip you to explore postgraduate routes into teaching careers (via the PGCE). Social policy is a theoretical and applied subject which draws on many different disciplines such as history, sociology, anthropology, economics, law, psychology and politics to improve our understanding of how different societies organise their resources to meet individual and social needs and how they measure progress in these areas. Education studies allows you to develop knowledge of the education systems of the UK and beyond, looking at issues including policy, social justice, equity and inclusion. The course will be based around inquiry led approaches, considering key questions such as how should education and social policy adapt to a changing global, digital, connected and information-rich world? How can education and social policy effectively address the needs of a more diverse society?
