Our education courses enable students to develop a critically informed understanding of education across the lifespan, including formal and informal learning.
These degrees examine education in its widest interpretation, drawing on many subject areas. Students develop an awareness of the aims and values of education, its relationship to society and a critical perspective of educational theory, policy and practice.
