EFPM914 Education Studies



Available via distance learning


This module gives you the opportunity to engage in critical and lively debate around ‘big questions’ that are often asked in relation to education. Each module session will debate a different ‘big question’. This will mean that you will critically examine a number of different contemporary educational issues over the course of study. The Education Studies module (EFPM914) is a pre-requisite to this module because you will be required to bring your knowledge and understanding of the different theoretical perspectives to bear on the contemporary issues which will be critically examined in this module.
