Education

Our Education course takes the disciplinary approach. We give our students grounding in the core principles of the four disciplines that help us understand education: history, philosophy, psychology, and sociology. In the first two years of Education, we will provide you with core knowledge in all four of the key disciplines of education. In your final year, we will encourage you to make interdisciplinary connections to aspects of education that interest you and normally allow you to narrow your focus on two disciplines of your choice. This provides you with the opportunity to specialise in the areas.

History

Our History course explores aspects of both modern and early modern British, Irish, and European history. In the first year you will study two key units, twentieth century European history and England 1530-1650: these two periods enable students to encounter a very wide range of historical issues and types of evidence. In the second year you will study a course on Nationalism and Imperialism which explores continental European developments and Anglo-Irish relations from the seventeenth to the late twentieth centuries. The final year enables you to study a selection of specialist subjects linked closely to staff research expertise. At all levels you will analyse primary sources and the work of historians, developing your understanding of challenging ideas and concepts. You will pursue an independent research assignment or two smaller ones.
