BA (Hons) Education
17 December 2018
Before I started University I was unsure on what I wanted to do. I knew that I loved working with children but I was not sure what sector of Education would best suit me, or the age range I would like to work with. It can be really hard at a young age to know exactly what you want to do with your life; therefore I wanted to keep my options open as much as possible. During my degree my perspective was to change.
When I looked into the BA (Hons) Education course, I knew it was for me. I loved the idea of a course that did not narrow down to a specific area of education but looked at all the key educational topics that will assist you in a large range of work settings. I also loved the fact that we look into contemporary issues within Education: social justice inclusion and the chance to reflect on hot topics.
With this degree you can have a career in many different areas of Education:
- You can complete your PGCE after your degree and become a teacher for the age range you prefer.
- You could work for a charity or even set up your own not for profit organisation.
- Maybe you want to work for the Department of Education.
- Or you could work in museums, outreach organisations, further education, resource developers, assessment organisations etc.
With this degree under your belt, you can be prepared for a wide range of careers giving you flexibility to alter your career in the future if you wished to.
I love my course! Not only is the course leader Julia a magnificent lecturer who really loves and cares for the course she helped develop, but within the course we really are a family and work together to ensure we all get through the course together.
I would recommend the BA (Hons) Education to everyone as I think you won't only leave university with this degree, but after three years you'll be a mature, insightful, critical and unique educator who will make a difference to the field.
