Education and Social Science and History

UCAS Code: VXC3

Education and Social Science

This interdisciplinary degree will help you develop a critical understanding of education in both formal and non-formal contexts from an international and UK perspective.

It provides you with the critical tools required to interrogate debates and legislation relating to education and social policy, paying particular attention to the relationship between education and society. 

At its heart, the programme addresses issues of social justice and equality, educational and social disadvantage, and looks at how we can challenge injustice and inequality through our actions and practice.

History

In short, the study of History is essential, and at St Mary’s you will have the opportunity to explore a wide range of different historical periods, countries, and themes.

You will immerse yourself in histories of Britian, Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and America, ranging from the medieval period to the present day. You will study the rise and fall of states, the causes of wars and revolutions, and social and political movements.

You will be doing much more than learning what happened, you will be interpreting sources, explaining how and why societies change, and thinking about why that is important, and by doing this you will be equipping yourself to analyse the many challenges of today’s world.

Studying History at St Mary’s will also give you the opportunity to develop skills such as conducting research, analysing evidence, and communicating your findings that employers look for in a range of careers. Our recent graduates have gone on to further study or to work in fields as diverse as law, finance, marketing, public relations, teaching, museums and heritage.

You may also qualify for the new St Mary's History Scholarship.
