Study Education Studies
Education provides a critical analysis of educational theories, policies and practices, to promote understanding of education in its social context. The study of education is concerned with how societies ensure that their children and adults become knowledgeable citizens.
The University of Otago College of Education offers a range of papers contributing to the study of education, either as a subject major in a BA degree, or as a minor subject contributing to other degrees. If you are interested in how people learn in the social context of learning, Education Studies might be the right pathway for you.
The papers can link to study in related fields of History, Sociology, Psychology, Social Work and other majors.
Education provides a foundation for all teaching and for careers that require critical thought, interactions with people, an understanding of human development and learning, policy analysis and advanced communication.
