Education and Society (2018)

Education and Society involves critical inquiry into the social, political, cultural, and economic policies, theories and practices of education in New Zealand society. Its origins are in humanities and social science disciplines such as History, Philosophy, and Sociology, and it has close affinities with contemporary interdisciplinary fields exploring social policy, culture, gender, and work. Education and Society raises questions about the role of Education in addressing issues of social justice, power and inequality.

Education and Society is available as a major for the Bachelor of Social Sciences offered through the Faculty of Education and the Bachelor of Arts offered through the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences. Education and Society may also be taken as a second major or as a minor in other undergraduate degrees, subject to academic approval of the Faculty in which the student is enrolled.
