Education

On this course you’ll study the role of education within societies and cultures, as well as how schools and other educational settings shape our lives. You’ll address different approaches to education. You’ll also examine the ways people learn across a wide range of educational institutions, both in the UK and beyond, including in primary schools, secondary schools, museums and charities. And you’ll examine how education, childhood, adolescence and lifelong-learning interrelate. Throughout your degree you will examine cutting-edge issues in educational theory, practice and policy, with reference to a range of national and international settings. You’ll discover topics such as education as an academic discipline, international education and learning, and teaching in the digital world. You’ll explore developmental, moral and social issues in education. All this will be underpinned by the history, philosophy, psychology and sociology of education. You’ll also have the chance to gain first-hand experience of educational settings such as schools, museums, prisons, charities, and management throughout your degree. This will help you draw links between theoretical approaches and real-life examples. In your final year you’ll complete a research project on a topic pf your choice under the supervision of a lecturer who’s actively engaged in research in that area. Throughout your studies, key skills learning is integrated to ensure that you have the opportunity to develop the attributes that are valued by employers. These skills, which include teamwork, communication, presentation and problem solving, will enhance your self-confidence and employability. You’ll benefit from research-led teaching as well as a favourable student to staff ratio. In the National Student Survey UEA is placed 1st for overall satisfaction out of all UK universities for Academic Studies in Education (NSS 2017). **Course Structure** **Year 1** You’ll begin your degree by establishing a solid foundation in the main theories, concepts and issues in Education. You’ll explore education in the context of psychology, sociology, history and philosophy, and discover how such contexts help us to understand education in today’s society. You’ll also link the key concepts and issues to real-life examples. **Year 2** At this stage you’ll take two compulsory modules focusing on how we learn, and discovering methods in educational research. In the Educational Psychology module you’ll study how we learn as well and the factors that can support and hinder learning in educational settings. In your Researching and Learning From Experience module you’ll acquire the skills required to undertake desk-based and empirical research. You’ll also have the opportunity to complete a placement in an educational setting. This could be a primary or secondary school, museum, prison or within a human resources department or company. You can also choose optional modules to tailor your learning to your interests. You’ll have access to a range of modules available within the School of Education and Lifelong Learning. These focus on topics such as childhood and youth studies, teaching and language and education. You can also choose to study abroad in your second year, learn a new language, and/or broaden your studies by taking selected cross-disciplinary modules. **Year 3** During your final year, you’ll continue to specialise and work with educational theories, concepts and issues. You’ll also complete a dissertation research project under the supervision of a lecturer.
