About the course

Are you looking to develop your understanding and knowledge of educational theories, policies and practice, and apply these to past and present educational issues? This degree looks at the influences on the development of the education system, the curriculum, and learners with disabilities. In addition to studying the core social theories and research methodologies, you will explore and debate a range of sociological themes. You’ll gain comprehensive knowledge of these two disciplines and will develop a range of skills and practical experience which will enable you to pursue either educational or sociological study at a higher level. The BA (Hons) Education and Sociology degree is a popular course which combines two complementary disciplines with principles of social justice at the core. The Sociology aspect of the course provides you with a foundation in social theory and research methodologies with which to explore a range of themes including class, childhood, disability, gender, race and ethnicity, religion, sexuality, within topics such as disease & illness, social movements, human rights, 'suspect' populations and insecure spaces, resistance and rebellion, and contemporary British society.
