Education and Social Policy

**Why study this course?** This unique course allows you to study both education and social policy as a single honours degree. You'll be equipped with the knowledge, skills and understanding to take on the challenges of promoting social justice in education and welfare. As a graduate from this course, you could pursue a career within youth and community, or continue your studies to qualify as a teacher. **More about this course** We live in a diverse society with people from a variety of backgrounds. Whilst diversity is a good thing, it can also highlight the persistent inequalities experienced by different sections of society. During this course you’ll examine the current considerations of social and education policies, the issues affecting both the policies and the people affected by them, and, most critically, understand what’s needed in order to drive positive social change. You’ll examine the societal issues of class, gender, race, sexuality, age and disability, with emphasis on the inclusion and special needs agenda that dominates education and social policy. Areas of study are specialised, and you can expect to learn about educational needs, multilingualism, gender, racism, religion and housing. This course is designed to help you become a confident and effective communicator with strong analytical and theoretical skills. You’ll develop the capacity to appreciate the increasing diversity of cultural, social and religious backgrounds at play within the UK’s education and welfare system. There are opportunities for you to develop mentoring and coaching skills, as well having the chance to undertake a work placement, enhancing your understanding of social justice and boosting your career prospects in related fields. **What our students say** "The course has been amazing! It's so much information to take in but I'm loving every minute - in particular the Becoming an Educationalist module. One word to describe that module: WOW!" Selina, former student "I am finding the course very enjoyable and thought-provoking. The resources and support available to students are fantastic." Janine, former student
