Education and Computing

The BSc (Hons) Education and Computing joint honours degree will enable you to specialise in both subjects, developing a range and mix of skills and knowledge which will enhance your future career prospects. The programme is intended for students who wish to develop their knowledge and skills in computing and how this subject applies to education and wider society. Designed for both UK/EU and international students, our BSc (Hons) Education and Computing programme considers: • Education in a wide context, not just within formal primary and secondary school settings, but also Further/Higher Education, social services, local and national government, and education within the community. • A wide range of computing skills, including how to program (e.g., C and Java) and analyse a wide range of computing systems, and the fundamental mathematics and theory of computer science. You will learn about operating systems and networking, computer graphics, compilers, scientific modelling, mathematical abstraction, databases, and advanced and specialised programming. You will also develop an excellent working knowledge of professional standards in the computing education sector and in industry more widely. You will be equipped with a solid grounding in computing, as well as contemporary theories and conceptual models of education as applied to local, national and international practice. Employability and study skills are embedded throughout our degree, with all students having the opportunity to undertake optional work placement modules in years two and three of the degree. Computer Science at Swansea was ranked 1st in Wales, 3rd in the UK for overall teaching quality, and 8th in the UK for graduate prospects (Times and Sunday Times University Guide 2016). A unique aspect of the degree is its emphasis on learning in a digital age, giving you the opportunities to experiment, assess and reflect on digital learning technologies central to current trends in education theory and practice. The degree structure is flexible, offering a wide-range of specialist modules that allow you to tailor your degree to your future career goals while developing your individual interests. As part of the degree, all students will be given the option of studying towards the Cambridge English CELTA (Certificate in English Language Teaching to Adults), at a substantially reduced cost to students. A variety of global summer programmes are available including two-week study and cultural tours to China, Vietnam and Thailand.
