Education and Psychology

The BA (Hons) Education and Psychology joint honours degree will enable students to specialise in both subjects, developing a range and mix of skills and knowledge which will enhance their future career prospects. Education is a forward-looking, research-led discipline concerned with policy and practice from a global perspective. It is a rapidly growing area of study that draws on the disciplines of psychology, philosophy, history and the social sciences to focus on understanding how people learn and how structures of education operate to foster life-long learning and personal development. Designed for UK/EU and international students, our BSc (Hons) Education and Psychology course 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. - The psychological and neuroscientific processes that underpin daily activities, such as thinking, reasoning, memory and language. In each year of study, emphasis is placed on using psychological theory and research to understand and address societal issues and real-world problems. 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. • In The Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014, the Department of Psychology at Swansea University was one of only four psychology departments in the UK to achieve a 100% 4* rating (maximum score possible) for the reach and significance of its work. • 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. • The degree is taught by innovative experts who have strong national and international links. • A variety of global summer programmes are available including two-week study and cultural tours to China, Vietnam and Thailand. • Typical salaries for qualified primary and secondary school teachers are in the region of £22,467-£33,160, depending on experience.
