Alongside preparing teachers for the classroom, the study of Education encompasses a broad range of options that reflect the far-reaching nature of the field.

Why study Education?

Here at The University of Waikato we produce educators who are interested in how knowledge, skills and values are constructed, accumulated, and conveyed through formal and informal means.

Along with subjects designed for students wanting to become teachers, the papers available in the subject Education provide opportunities for academic and professional development for those employed in the education sector. It is possible to plan a programme that is tailored to individuals' intellectual and/or professional needs.

Students who are not necessarily working in the education sector may wish to consider the subject Education and Society.
