Education as an Arts subject is concerned with issues in the field of education. It addresses these issues using approaches from psychology, philosophy, sociology and history.

Education and your career

Graduates in Education have careers in educational psychology, human resources, in marae-based training, in government agencies, and in the planning and servicing of education in New Zealand and overseas.

A Bachelor of Arts in Education is excellent preparation if you want to go on to complete a professional teaching qualification after your degree. To teach at secondary school level, your BA needs to include advanced courses in a subject taught at secondary school.

Study options in Education

Education is available for both undergraduate and postgraduate programmes in Arts. It is taught by the Faculty of Education and Social Work's Liberal Arts Programme.
