An introduction to the Department of Educational Studies

Educational Studies isn’t just about teaching and learning. At Goldsmiths it’s exploratory and expansive. We see education as a window on which to view the world, and as something with the power to define who we are and how we live. 

As a department we’re interested in seeing what education can tell us about the social, political and economic forces of our times and what these forces mean for the everyday lives of individuals and groups at different levels of society. It’s why our research delves into areas including culture and identity, gender, multilingualism, and youth cultures, and why we maintain a commitment to social justice and inclusion.
