Educational studies at Goldsmiths focuses on social justice and inclusion. We see the study of culture and society as a window through which to view the world, and education as something with the power to define who we are and how we live.
Why study Education at Goldsmiths?
Learn about the fascinating impact of education on society
On the BA Education, Culture & Society degree you'll develop a great understanding of education’s role in UK society and beyond. You'll address a broad range of themes and ideas including gender in the early years, alternatives to schooling, mental health and wellbeing, and institutional racism.
Work experience and study abroad opportunities
You’ll have the opportunity to gain work experience at a range of organisations. Previous students have worked on literacy with Bengali women, developed educational materials at a city farm, and organised an art exhibition at a pupil referral unit for excluded secondary school students. You'll also have the opportunity to study abroad in China or Luxembourg for a term, which could give you a great insight into a different cultural, educational and linguistic environment.
Explore issues of social justice
You’ll be encouraged to think about the ways people are excluded from education and society. We're interested in exploring the tensions that can arise in a system that advocates education for all, but prevents the full participation of some groups within society
