Our Education Studies degree equips you with the skills for a career in a wide range of educational contexts.

On the course you’ll study child and adolescent development. You’ll examine inclusion and educational inequalities. And you’ll question government educational policy. You’ll also analyse how education is portrayed in popular culture.

You’ll build knowledge about the role of education in our society, exploring areas like:

  • psychology
  • gender
  • 21st-century education
  • special educational needs and disabilities
  • children’s literature.

You can choose to specialise in SEN, Disabilities and Inclusion (SENDI). You’ll deepen your knowledge of SEND issues. And you’ll build a firm foundation for teacher training that will equip you for success in mainstream or special education.

You’ll graduate with sought-after educational career skills that you can apply in settings like:

  • youth work
