Course summary

It will enable them to explore existing policy issues and practices, and apply the insights provided to their own experiences. Students have the opportunity to develop a comprehensive theoretical understanding of education policy, drawing in particular on sociological perspectives. Students will study major and topical themes within social science (such as globalisation, markets and managerialism) with a particular emphasis on their effects on and relevance to education within and beyond the UK.
