Our joint honours degree programme within the Cardiff School of Education, offers students the unique opportunity to combine subjects from within the Humanities and Education subject areas. Education Studies offers key academic preparation for graduates who wish to work in a wide range of settings related to education. It is concerned with understanding learning and education in England, Wales and beyond, from inside the classroom, the boardroom and the home, amongst others. The course team comes from a range of professional and research backgrounds and will provide an exploration of psychological, sociological, historical and contemporary issues within education. Students will discover what it means to be a learner; how education is supposed to meet the needs of individuals; how lifelong learning can impact and benefit communities and the challenges to education of overcoming poverty to improve life chances. The subject offers a comprehensive overview of all aspects of teaching, learning and education – it doesn't just focus on primary and secondary classrooms. This means that our students leave us with a rounded and critical perspective of the education system – as well as key skills that employers value – meaning greater potential for career and training opportunities. Sport at Cardiff Metropolitan University has an international reputation for the quality of its academic, professional, research and extra-curricular work. This subject examines sport and physical activity, health issues and sports principles and techniques, and explores current issues in physical education. The modules have a distinct educational focus. You will be able to choose specific sports to specialise in, selected from a wide range of National Curriculum-based sports. Participation in practical sport and physical activity will not only enable development of interpersonal skills but also provide knowledge and understanding of technical aspects and the application of theory into practice. There will also be opportunities to gain national coaching qualifications.
