  • BA (Hons), Full-time , Duration: 3 Years
Course Summary:
Education Studies modules specialise in looking at educational themes, ideas and practices in the widest possible sense through educational theories and philosophies. You explore a range of contexts from the classroom and the learner's experience through to education as a lever for social and political change. Theoretical perspectives are drawn from themes which include gender, citizenship, representation, truth, power, childhood and inclusion. Modern, philosophical, cultural, social, psychological and historical perspectives are all used as analytical tools to help examine educational debates and a wide variety of educational themes and concepts. You interrogate the educational process as a whole and seek answers to questions about the purpose, value, misuse and difficulties of education and learning. History modules cover a range of cultures, centuries, wars and traditions, sampling the past from the classical to the modern period. The first academic year introduces you to a variety of historical periods and cultures and looks at the methods and nature of history as a discipline. Study focuses on research skills and knowledge that forms the basis of more specialised study in subsequent years – this includes learning how to use original documents to carry out research. This is both a rigorous academic degree and an excellent preparation for those wishing to take a PGCE, particularly for those wanting to teach History.
Modules:
Please see the single honours course pages for modular structure. Usually combined honours study two modules from each subject to make up the four modules per semester (2 semesters) (8 modules per year.) These two modules are usually comprised of the core modules in 1st year and then core and optional modules in 2nd and 3rd year. You will find course specific leaflets as a PDF on our website, these give further details of modular structure for combined and single honours. It is normally possible to transfer to a single honours programme at the end of Year 1.

Winchester was such a pretty, lovely place to study. It’s a real community oriented university, you’ll get to know everyone here which is great. The nightlife isn’t crazy like, say, Brighton, there are a few nice clubs here, The SU throws the Bop every Wednesday is bloody mental, and if you want to have a really good night out you can get a cheap taxi down to Southampton. My tutors were really supportive, and they drove me to the best of my ability - they offered great feedback and were always available for a chat.
