Overview

This joint honours degree combines two highly desirable areas of study. Throughout the course you will engage with urgent and key issues facing contemporary societies, with a particular focus on matters of social division, social inequality and identity.

You’ll be encouraged to pursue original thought and ideas, with the seminar room providing opportunities for sustained discussion and debate.

You’ll have fantastic opportunities to explore education across a wide range of contexts, from primary schools to forest schools, from the UK to Africa, and chances to take up work experience, study abroad at a partner university and to participate in volunteering activities.

Career opportunities

The Education Studies degree is an excellent route for progression to PGCE courses at Worcester and other providers. If you achieve a 2:1 or above you will be guaranteed an interview for teacher training (Primary) at Worcester provided you meet the various national pre-requisites for the course.

As well as going on to become successful teachers other students move into areas such as learning support, child mentoring and welfare, and become training officers in the private sector.

A degree in Sociology is a gateway to many careers, especially jobs that involve managing and communicating with people, thinking out solutions to problems, and understanding the diverse society in which we live. Our graduates have an excellent employment record and have taken up a variety of careers, including careers in housing, the probation service, youth work, caring professions, social services, the police, business and personnel management, public relations, media, marketing, and teaching.

In order to help you reflect, plan and work on your career and progression aspirations, Sociology provides a number of opportunities for you to discuss and develop them.
