BA (Hons) Education Studies

General

Program Description

This programme provides a broad-based platform for the study of key aspects of education, in particular, current concepts, practices, and issues. It focuses on the nature of learning and human development and the socio-economic, historical, cultural and political contexts of educational institutions and of the wider society in which learning takes place.

It is also concerned with the differing approaches to knowledge and curricula within institutions, and with evaluating the nature of, and the outcomes arising from, educational processes.
