Education is impacted by multiple psychological, social, cultural and economic aspects. This innovative new course will give you insight into how these aspects affect the educational system and the people within it. This is a new course for 2016 and is informed by the latest research and theory. You'll learn the background of the field and will study diverse areas, ranging from legal and governance to contemporary psychology. You will gain a solid understanding of current issues in education, enabling you to specialise in an area that fascinates you, such as cognition, crime and deprivation, and social justice. Work experience is integrated into the course, giving you crucial hands-on experience and supporting your knowledge of the field. This will enhance your employability after graduating. Your degree can take you anywhere, but popular career paths include youth work, community education or within the charity and volunteer sector. You may also wish to undertake postgraduate study to specialise in a subject you've already studied, or to explore something new.
