Comments about BA Education Studies - At the institution - York - North Yorkshire
Through the study of education, in its many guises, we will ask questions and seek answers. Our first question might be 'What is education?' Think for a second about this. What comes into your head? What does it mean to be educated? What would an educated person look like? Or act like? What does it mean when we say that we have had a good education? The Education Studies programme will help you to discover the answers to these and other questions.
