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.
Studying for a postgraduate degree in education allows you to build on the skills you gained at undergraduate level, developing you as an educational professional. Your theoretical knowledge and practical abilities will be challenged, and you will have the opportunity to further explore your role as an educator, and the impact you have on your students.
Modules you study might include education and mental wellbeing, special and inclusive education, leadership in education, and teaching controversial issues. If you are training to become a subject specific teacher, your degree will also include modules that are tailored to your chosen subject.
