The BA (Hons) Education will equip you with both the academic knowledge and the relevant practical skills to build a career working with children and young people in different settings and geographical locations. You will be taught in a School which is doing pioneering world-class research in diverse specialisms from character education and racial equality to innovative technology for children on the autistic spectrum. This programme is made up of core and optional modules to allow you to build a programme to suit your own interests and career aspirations. Our modules explore how people, and especially children, develop and learn in their social and cultural contexts. Our extensive range of compulsory and optional modules is constantly updated to include new research, meet the needs of the sector and to recognise the UK’s evolving education policy and practices. There are three years of study, each worth 120 credits including a compulsory two-week vocational placement during the second year and completion of a dissertation. Each year, BA Education students will also have the opportunity to study a MOMD (Module Outside the Main Discipline). The BA (Hons) Education gives you the option in your second year to study overseas at one of our partner institutions for the first semester.
