Examine the foundations of education in contemporary society, from individual, national and international perspectives. You will not only explore education’s relationship to social justice, including questions of equality and inequality, but also the processes of human learning and barriers to learning across different age ranges and learning communities.
On this course, core modules explore various aspects of education, including the sociology, politics, history and theory of education. Investigating aspects of inclusive education and barriers to learning is a key focus across the modules.
You’ll look at topics such as language and literacy, mathematical thinking and special educational needs. You'll also explore key elements of disability, equality, and diversity.
Methods of assessment for this course overall: 100% coursework.
You’re guaranteed an interview for teacher training after you graduate from this degree, and have excellent employment opportunities if you want to start your career in an educational or related setting. You’ll also be very well prepared to take a PGCE or employment-based route into teaching, or to carry your studies on to Masters level.
At LSBU, we want to set you up for a successful career. During your studies – and for two years after you graduate – you’ll have access to our Employability Service, which includes:
Our Student Enterprise team can also help you start your own business and develop valuable entrepreneurial skills.
We have extensive links with schools, alternative educational settings and the creative industries, as well as organisations such as The British Dyslexia Association, Achievement for All, and researchers in the field.
You’ll have the chance to complete two placements in contrasting educational settings. In your first year, you’ll spend time in a school taking on the role of a reading mentor. In your second year, you’ll complete a placement in an alternative educational setting, such as a prison, pupil referral unit (PRU), or hospital school.
You will experience a range of learning approaches including lectures, small group discussions, online materials, and interaction and placements. Study Skills will be embedded throughout the modules as well as a specific Study Skills module.
As an undergraduate Law and Social Science student, you will be allocated a named tutor during your first semester at LSBU. The role of your tutor is to be your primary contact for academic and professional development support.
Your tutor will support you to get the most of your time at LSBU, providing advice and signposting to other sources of support in the University. They should be the first person at the university that you speak to if you are having any difficulties that are affecting your work. These could be academic, financial, health-related or another type of problem.
In your first and second year, you will have three 1-1 tutorials with your personal tutor.
In your final year your dissertation supervisor will arrange to meet with you as required.
You can contact your tutor/supervisor for additional support by email or phone.
If you have already completed some studies at another university, we may be able to consider you for advanced entry. Please see our advanced entry page for more information.
