Education

 

Education studies evolved from the pedagogical background of teacher training. In the past this discipline of studies concentrated mainly on the training of future educators, however, nowadays with the growing complexity of educational systems and technological advancements, educational studies offer exciting new approaches to teaching and curriculum development. Apart from a deep understanding of the complexity of education and schooling systems, learning about psychological and social foundations of education in contemporary and historical contexts, studies also emphasize the importance of the way education intersects with a broad range of social, cultural, political and economic forces.

Career options

 

Individuals with a background in education and teaching are needed not only in schools, but also in businesses, non-profit organizations, government agencies, community action groups, policy centers, cultural sector, adult education centers and even hospitals.

 

A degree in education allows applying for a variety of jobs. These may include the most obvious choices such as school teacher, private tutor, academic advisor, community coordinator, instructional designer, youth development and early childhood educators. However, there are in fact limitless choices in other sectors that may not necessarily have an obvious connection with the field of education. These may include:

 

- working for non-profit organizations (transitional shelters, and refugee centers),

- social and educational policy jobs (research analyst),

- corporate careers (in HR, marketing, customer service),

- education law positions (social worker),

- working as a career counselor or a recruiter,

- working with development of educational programs (as an education publisher or developer),

- cultural industry jobs (in museums and with exhibitions)

- working in science centers.

 

Studies dedicated to education are not only a straight pathway to a teaching career, but they are also a way to introduce and promote educational and societal change outside the classroom.
