Our subjects Education degrees

What is education?

Education is the study of the education system of Scotland and beyond, looking at issues including policy, social justice, equity and inclusion.

Why study education?

It will give you a well-rounded understanding through the study of philosophy, psychology and sociology of education.

Why study education at Strathclyde?

Studying education at the University of Strathclyde, you'll be learning at an award-winning academic institution - the only to have won Times Higher Education University of the Year twice!

We’re the only university in Scotland to offer a joint honours education degree. Combining education with other subjects provides opportunities for those who wish to work in professions associated with education, but who don't wish to become teachers.

Having worked in the educational sector for 20 years including at senior levels I have both observed and carried out leadership in a number of different context. I am intrigued by the range of both successful and unsuccessful leadership practices that I have seen. I enjoy working with students to explore their understanding of leadership.
