  • Increase awareness of, and access to, a range of academic ideas and research findings in relation to issues of education and social justice

  • Promote personalisation of broad themes around the challenges posed by changing global political, social and economic landscapes and to meet the needs and interests of students while providing a focused line of study

  • Promote engagement with key issues in education and social justice, involving critical examination of a wide range of key sources and texts
