Education

While most education degrees are designed to prepare students for work in various educator roles, some are more theory based. The latter types of education degrees focus on analyzing current and past education systems and debating their strengths and flaws.

The goal of these courses is ultimately about improving education, drawing on research looking at everything from the way children learn to the best governmental structure for schools and how to keep the teachers themselves motivated.
