What will I learn?

The programme allows you to engage with a range of theoretical perspectives from ancient Greece to the present. Examining these perspectives enables you to think deeply about developments in educational and mathematical theory and practices. You will develop sound knowledge of your subject areas, an informed critical voice and the capacity for the critical application of your knowledge to a range of real life settings in and beyond formal education.The first year of this programme starts with an introduction to the range of educational, mathematical and statistical theories. This provides the foundations for successful study in the second and third years. In your second year, you will engage deeply in the study of educational concepts, issues and abstract ideas. This is complemented by the opportunity to explore the beauty and power of mathematics in action and the weird and wonderful world of abstract mathematics by exploring several modern mathematical theories such as number theory, abstract algebra and analysis. In the final year, you will focus on the critical application of theory to a wide range of educational situations, contexts, settings and experiences in the real world and to the development of specialised mathematical knowledge and understanding in the areas you are interested in. You will work with and to apply theory in developing a critical synthesis of meanings within and/or beyond formal education. This could be in relation to personal, political, institutional, social or global concerns and issues.
