The roots of education are bitter but the fruit is sweet.
The goal of this Bachelor’s degree study programme is to prepare experts qualified to work in education and development with people of all age groups. The graduate is equipped with the knowledge, skills, and competences acquired through the study of theoretical and applied disciplines, emphasizing a broader theoretical-pedagogical and human-science basis on one hand and application on the other. The graduates are prepared to continue their studies in a Master’s degree study programme building on the knowledge, skills, and competences acquired in the Bachelor’s degree study programme.
The study programme in pedagogy focuses on developing the competences relevant to planning, preparing, and undertaking empirical research and on developing the abilities and skills to explore a diversity of issues in education through theoretical study. Graduates can use their widely applicable competences in working with specialized texts and advanced communication skills in a wide variety of jobs as well as in lifelong learning.
In their current form, the study programme curricula include practical training. Parts of some courses take place in schools. The practical focus is strengthened by including the Motivation Build-up course and the Animation course, the latter focusing on experiential education.
Graduates of the programme find employment in offices and institutions dealing with education and upbringing at all levels, including in non-profit organizations. They can work in institutions providing formal and non-formal education.
