Education Studies and History
What is Joint Honours?
A Joint Honours degree gives you the opportunity to study two subjects as one degree. This type of degree will broaden your skill set and enhance your career prospects. You can combine any two subjects as long as they’re in different zones, find out what you can combine this subject with.
Education Studies is about understanding how people develop and learn throughout their lives, and involves the study of educational processes, systems and approaches including the psychological, social, cultural, political and historical contexts. By studying this course, you'll be encouraged to think about the different aspects of education, where and how education happens, including primary education, secondary education, lifelong learning, and higher education.
This course is not just intellectually challenging and politically relevant, it's also entertaining, inspiring and moving. We want you to have more skills and abilities than those traditionally associated with history graduates. So as well as developing your academic skills, you'll learn how to apply your historical knowledge to different roles.
As part of this course, you'll have the chance to do fieldwork at a range of locations from rural country houses to industrial Manchester. You'll visit a variety of museums, art galleries, heritage sites and towns, so you can explore the practical and intellectual applications of history.
