Our new teacher education portfolio will sit within the Division of Psychology and Sociology at QMU and will share the reputable approach taken by our psychology and sociology courses in being intellectually rigorous and student-centred, with a focus on wellbeing, social engagement and diversity at their core.
This new course will prepare students by actively engaging them in contemporary issues in psychology and sociology, and helping them develop a sound knowledge-base of children’s developmental pathways and the range of factors that affect them, studying, for example, the impact of poverty and deprivation in early years.
Students will also learn about global health and learning inequality, the impact of adversities such as homelessness, neglect and migration and the importance of creativity and the natural environment for our wellbeing. Our teacher education courses are designed for people who want to make a difference in the world.
