Course summary

Overview

If you are passionate about how education has shaped your life and wider issues facing the world, and believe it is vital to address topics such as sustainability and social justice, then Education Studies is for you.

Our course explores some big questions underpinning education through the lens of psychology, sociology, history and philosophy. You will engage with the issues that influence approaches to learning and will be able to compare education systems in a variety of countries and cultures to build an understanding of how people learn and develop throughout their lives.

This thought provoking and stimulating course also gives you the opportunity to explore areas such as gender, race, equality, politics, multiculturalism, pedagogy and representations of education in popular culture.

Learn how to identify a target audience, prepare effective messages and select the right media channels as you develop your talent for communications.

Explore the world of social media and learn how to use your creative and digital skills to influence audiences on behalf of your clients.

Why Study Education Studies?

Education Studies examines how people learn and develop throughout their whole lifetimes, investigating how successful this is and exploring the impact education does or does not have on how we live our lives as individuals, communities, countries and cultures.

As you progress through the degree, you'll develop a deep understanding of the key issues, policies and debates in education, while developing personal and professional skills. You'll examine education and learning in all its settings and contexts and you'll become highly knowledgeable about the learning process and the purpose and function of education.

If you are planning a professional career in the fields of public relations, media or marketing then look no further. On this professionally-accredited course you'll get to grips with all three areas, studying theories and practices that will develop your practical, creative and technical skills, so you become a work-ready graduate.
