Our Joint BA (Hons) Education and History degree course at Birmingham will provide you with the opportunity to study Education and History in equal proportions to Honours degree level. You will have the opportunity to combine the study of the human past in one or both of the modern and medieval periods with the study of educational practices, processes and applications in a range of contexts and settings. As a Joint Honours student, you will work at exactly the same level and to the same academic standard as students taking that subject as a Single Honours programme. The course has a practical focus on career development and employs a number of teaching and learning methods to help you display a broad knowledge over two disciplines. It is delivered through lectures, seminars, individual tuition and individual and small group research projects. In the second year of study, students will complete an assessed placement module, which includes a two week vocational placement.
