Overview

In choosing to study this Education and Fine Art degree you’ll cover a broad spectrum of childhood development activities that include the sociological, psychological and educational facets that influence the development of children. Additionally, you’ll cover the full core syllabus of a Fine Art Degree. You’ll be taught by enthusiastic staff and cover a range of practical, theoretical, and professional disciplines that employers demand. Your skills and abilities will be enhanced with regular exposure to team-work, communications, interpersonal, and time and work management opportunities.

The course will provide you with a general introduction to a broad range of traditional art media and fundamental concepts of artistic practice, before moving progressively to more specialised, comprehensive, and deeper study of the subject. In tandem with this, you will also learn the latest developments in the theory of teaching and learning and classroom management, to support you in pursuing a career in teaching, training or any other related field. You will find this to be a varied and stimulating course with a strong vocational outcome. You can also tailor your learning to suit your interests, opting for modules from both subject areas. In Fine Art, your choices may include modules concerning painting topics, book illustration and interdisciplinary studio practice. In Education, your choices may include literacy, Special Educational Needs and children’s rights.

You will benefit from the latest learning and teaching environments, the expertise of our experienced staff members, and the partnerships the School of Education maintains with communities, schools and authorities across Wales and the UK. This joint honours degree in Education and Fine Art will be of great use to you in a range of graduate jobs, particularly in schools and colleges. Not only will you be thoroughly equipped with the skills and knowledge needed to apply for teacher training at primary or secondary level, and a high level of subject expertise, you will be a fluent communicator, a careful worker with a variety of materials, and a strong debater able to form compelling arguments. These will all prove to be huge assets in any graduate workplace.
