About

Studying for a Master of Social Sciences in Education and Society at the University of Waikato challenges you to take your understanding of theoretical subject matter to an advanced level.

Overview

Description

Education and Society involves critical inquiry into the social, political, cultural, economic and personal theories and practices of lifelong education.

Education and Society involves critical inquiry into the social, political, cultural, and economic policies, theories and practices of education in New Zealand society. Its origins are in humanities and social science disciplines such as History, Philosophy, and Sociology, and it has close affinities with contemporary interdisciplinary fields exploring social policy, culture, gender, and work. Education and Society raises questions about the role of education in addressing issues of social justice, power and inequality.

Education and Society at the University of Waikato is available as a major for the BA and BSocSc. Education and Society may also be taken as a second major or as a supporting subject within other undergraduate degrees, subject to academic approval of the Faculty or School of Studies in which the student is enrolled.
