This degree provides you with the opportunity to immerse yourself in the history, philosophy, psychology and sociology of Education while simultaneously exploring the fascinating field of Modern History, from African-American civil rights to the origins of the Israel/Palestine conflict. In Education, you will explore why our school and university systems exist as they are, including how a succession of governments have helped shape and mould the way in which we teach children and train adults. You will come to understand the UK education system not only in its own right, but also in its European and global contexts. In History, you will develop a deep subject knowledge, gain an advanced understanding of the connections between that knowledge and the present-day. By combining the study of Education and History, you will engage with fundamental questions about the relationship between education, society and different cultures. If you have a keen interest in education, social justice, politics, culture and identity, this is the programme for you.
