Course Overview

*THIS COURSE WILL BE OFFERED IN 2022*

Studying Special Educational Needs (SEN) with Liverpool Hope University will enable you to understand the relationship between disability and education and provide you with the knowledge and confidence to educate others about the nature of disability. SEN incorporates insights from disability studies and education, as well as drawing on work in the arts and humanities, to ensure you gain a broad and balanced understanding of education in a wide range of contexts.

A central aspect of the course is an understanding of medical and social constructions of Special Educational Needs and Disability, the legal requirements regarding provision for SEN/Disability and a critical understanding of past and contemporary practices. By completing your studies in SEN, you will have gained a knowledge and understanding of the global perspectives on special education and disability and issues relating to children and families, as well as having the ability to critically engage with professional expertise.

SEN with Liverpool Hope University is an interdisciplinary subject underpinned by the work of the Centre for Culture and Disability Studies (CCDS). You will become a professional who is knowledgeable and skilled in this field. You will enter your professional life recognising the importance of compassion and understanding in your work with, and on behalf of disabled people and those identified as having a special educational need.
