Program Overview

Studying our combined honours Education and Astrophysics BSc, gives you the scope to analyse two interesting subject areas.

Education explores the nature of learning as well as core elements including policy, teaching and practice. You will actively engage with discussions around topics such as psychological, sociological and cultural influences in education, and consider how these may evolve in the future. You will also explore key issues and challenges associated with teaching and learning at different levels, such as primary and secondary.

The programme aims to develop your critical thinking skills and awareness of how this sector operates. You will become familiar with the communication between students and teachers as well as the collaboration between professionals in the workplace - exploring the ways in which teaching is delivered and considering classroom behaviour amongst students.

You will critically evaluate what education means to individuals and consider important scenarios around the roles and responsibilities of teachers. You will explore how children learn and analyse contemporary assessment methods. You will consider key factors such as age, the support a student may receive in a range of educational settings, as well as the influence of technology that plays a crucial role in their learning.

The Astrophysics part of the degree will see you apply physics to understand how the universe works and possibly investigate questions such as 'is there an Earth-like planet around another star?' 'Is there a black hole at the centre of every galaxy?' And 'why is the expansion of the Universe accelerating?'. These are questions that astrophysics helps you discover the answer to.
