Education

This course enables you to develop a theoretical framework within which you can analyse educational issues and, where appropriate, develop your own professional practice. It offers you the chance to plan an individual course of study by selecting particular modules within the programme or by taking modules that may lead to a named award. The course is designed for people working in education in all sectors and others with an interest in education. The programme of study provides an introduction to higher study and to the intellectual and academic discourses associated with education as a core university discipline.
