Education is something that happens at all stages of our lives, not just in childhood. It allows us to develop our thoughts and ideas, progress in our careers and learn more about the world in which we live.
Whether your interest lies in working with children with special educational needs, working in a museum as an educator, youth work, professional development in a private organisation, or making a contribution to the wider field of education, a BA Education Studies will give you a strong grounding for your career.
The degree is also excellent preparation for postgraduate teacher education and further study at master’s level.
An education studies degree at Bahçeşehir Cyprus University offers you breadth of study, but also provides direction, by giving you three possible pathways to pursue:
