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. This involves debate about the aims of education and the conflicting research paradigms from which educational practices are drawn.

The aims of the programme are:

  • To address the range of inter-disciplinary contributions which make up education studies
  • To further critical and research skills at all levels
  • To develop awareness of issues relevant to education and it's essential role in shaping contemporary society.
