About Education, Culture and Childhood at University of Sheffield

In the first year, you'll take modules in child psychology and the sociology of education. You'll also study histories of education, explore the curriculum and look at how childhood has been portrayed in different societies and at different times.

In your second year, a work placement module gives you the chance to apply what you've learned. You choose where you want to go. We can help you find the right place if you're stuck. You'll spend up to 180 hours in the workplace and we ask you to keep a journal of your experience.

If you go on a work placement, you might first need to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) check. The School of Education will organise and pay for this. We'll ask you to register with our online DBS service provider and present your required ID documentation. Once approved, your DBS will be posted to your home address.

Throughout the second and third years, you choose from a list of subjects including psychological theory and childhood experience, children and digital cultures, globalising education, philosophy and education, what is learning? and education policy.

Research is an important part of the course. There's a small-scale research project in the second year and an extended dissertation in the third year. We'll also train you in research methods.

In the third-year module Education@Sheffield, you'll present a critique of research by staff in the school. The module is designed to build your confidence so you can engage as an equal with your professors.

You can also study this course on a part-time basis. Contact the School of Education for more information about this study option.
