A combination of several humanities subjects, an education degree will prepare you for a career in a changeable and constantly-developing field. As well as covering the theoretical and practical applications of educational concepts, you will cover the managerial and financial aspects of the education sector. This will mean that you have the knowledge and skills to work at many different levels, from a teacher, to senior management at an institution.
Modules you study could include the history of education, inclusive education, teaching and learning in the digital age, and education beyond borders. If you are training to become a subject specific teacher, your degree will also include some modules that are tailored to your subject of choice.
Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These could include lectures and seminars, as well as group projects. It is likely that you will also be required to take part in a work placement as part of your degree.
