Overview

This Education Studies (Early Childhood) course explores a variety of childhood themes and how they have contributed to changing conceptions of family life, caring for the young and the context of schools.

Education Studies (Early Childhood) at Winchester shares the philosophical and pedagogical underpinnings of the Education Studies programme but specialises in the in-depth study of educational processes related to early childhood.

Programme structure

Students may wish to pursue the three year Single or Combined Honours BA (Hons) Education Studies (Early Childhood) pathway or the four year Single Honours MEd Stud (Hons) Education Studies (Early Childhood) pathway.

Alongside the compulsory modules for the Early Childhood pathway, students have the opportunity to work with other areas of study – race, gender, power, ecology and inclusion – and to apply these to early childhood. A variety of themes are drawn upon to explore early childhood in relation to ideas and political developments which have contributed to changing conceptions about family life and forms of caring for the young, both in the context of schools and in the wider culture.

Study in Year 1 is foundational and aims to provide a general level of contextual understanding for subsequent study. Students are encouraged to reflect on their own educational experiences, comment on how these experiences have influenced them and begin to familiarise themselves with the names and terms that impact current educational theory. The knowledge gained is built upon in Years 2 and 3. Students engage with social, political and cultural perspectives – building on knowledge and critically deploying it in relation to real-world situations.
