The BA Education programme is designed for students who have a passionate interest in the topic of education, and are looking for the opportunity to pursue this interest in a broader context than is possible in many teacher training courses.
As a student here you will encounter an exciting and challenging social science subject, which explores and questions the social, psychological, political and economic foundations of education in rapidly changing times. Education is a dynamic field, which we believe provides a lens through which to view the many challenges and opportunities life presents.
Your study will be led by our research into this field and the latest developments in policy and practice, encompassing aspects of culture and identity, childhood and youth, gender, and social justice and inclusion. What we offer you is a stimulating and relevant programme of study that provides a gateway to exciting careers in teaching, social policy, government, management and youth and community work.
