Assessing and understanding community needs to provide modes of delivery and educational content that improves levels of attainment and life chances, is the structural and thematic rationale of our course. This perspective is developed in two related areas: nationally, motivated by the increasing independence of schools; and internationally, particularly in developing countries, motivated by globalisation.

Why Study Education in Society with us?

Taught at our Riverside Campus in Chester, this course will be delivered through blended learning, with each module designed and delivered by educational specialists.

- A variety of modes of content delivery, including digital materials, such as online seminars and video clips of documentaries

- Routine online support from the module tutor.
