About

This Education, Power and Social Change (Part-Time) course at Birkbeck, University of London will deepen your awareness of how education shapes, and is shaped by, our understanding of the world.

Visit the official programme website for more information

Overview

We explore the links between education (all forms of informal and formal learning, across all age ranges, including adult, higher and professional education), and social and political movements, and develop understandings of how 'education' as a contested field should be viewed within a globalised and postcolonial context.

Taking an interdisciplinary approach to thinking about education, we draw on the arts and humanities as well as the more conventional representations of education in social science. We explore key debates on what is the role of education and how people learn, developed from a range of viewpoints, including critical theory.

The Education, Power and Social Change (Part-Time) course at Birkbeck, University of London  is one of a suite of postgraduate courses looking at the subject of education, power and social change and is ideal if you are interested in studying this subject at postgraduate level for personal or professional reasons, but you don't want to commit to a full MA.
