Program description

Education BA (Full-time)

Why study this course?

The Education or Education (with Practice) BA degree offers you two career routes to choose from after a shared first year of the program. The course tackles the big questions concerning education as seen through sociological, historical, philosophical and psychological lenses leading on to a wide variety of career choices or further academic study.

If you're interested in becoming a teacher, the Education (with Practice) BA route will give you valuable work experience in your second and third years in preparation for the Postgraduate Certificate of Education (PGCE) after graduation.

The teaching will be conducted by experienced lecturers who formerly worked as teachers or managers in schools. They will encourage you to take an active role in current debates on child education from the perspective of several disciplines, including philosophy and sociology. They are also ideally placed to give you an insight into the possibilities of a teaching career and the many options available to you after graduation.
