Why study teaching and education?

Education is a broad discipline that includes learning how to teach others and understanding how people learn during different stages of their lives. The focus of what you study will depend on your interests: Is early childhood education a passion, or would you like to teach older learners? Are you interested in lifelong learning, education policy or curriculum design? Whatever your choice, you have a chance to impact the lives of others.
