The BSc (Hons) Education and Computing joint honours degree will enable students to specialise in both subjects, Education and Computing, developing a range and mix of skills and knowledge which will enhance their future career prospects and prepare them for a role in computing education.
The programme is intended for students who wish to develop their knowledge and skills in computing and how this subject applies to education and wider society.
Designed for both UK/EU and international students, our BSc (Hons) Education and Computing programme considers:
Education in a wide context, not just within formal primary and secondary school settings, but also Further/Higher Education, social services, local and national government, and education within the community.
A wide range of computing skills, including how to program (e.g., C and Java) and analyse a wide range of computing systems, and the fundamental mathematics and theory of computer science. Students will learn about operating systems and networking, computer graphics, compilers, scientific modelling, mathematical abstraction, databases, and advanced and specialised programming. Students will also develop an excellent working knowledge of professional standards in the computing education sector and in industry more widely.
Research Focused: Students will be equipped with a solid grounding in computing, as well as contemporary theories and conceptual models of education as applied to local, national and international practice. Students will develop the research skills needed to critically evaluate current education practice and policy, and in turn, inform future policy development in a rapidly changing political and social environment..
Enhancing Employability: Employability and study skills are embedded throughout our BSc (Hons) Education and Computing degree, with all students having the opportunity to undertake optional work placement modules in years two and three of the degree
