Education Studies introduces learners to the range of disciplines that have been used to make sense of educational relations. You will encounter perspectives deriving from sociology, history, psychology and philosophy as well as those rooted in policy studies, cultural studies and feminism. Educational processes are understood in their broadest sense and encompass all sectors of education, formal and informal as well as engaging with cultural, social and political issues.
