Education and training engages students in the investigation of educational theory, policy, research and practice, and prepares them to pass knowledge and best practices to others. Sub-disciplines of education and training address the diverse needs of students in a variety of fields, including: school education, higher education, vocational education, counselling, coaching, international education, academic research, continuing education, adult education, online education, and more.

Education and training features a high level of multidisciplinary study, including knowledge of psychology, sociology, anthropology, political science, economics, history and more.

Future educators and trainers are expected to think critically and creatively about the processes of teaching and its place in society. In addition to the teaching profession, students are prepared for working in educational research as well as policy-making and organisation. They gain advanced knowledge on such topics as: learning theory, instructional design, methods of instruction, learning technologies, knowledge delivery, assessment methods.

Besides teaching, graduates may practice in non-profits and policy agencies, or aim to complete a doctorate in a chosen field of study. Career examples include athletics coaching, corporate training, emergency medical services (EMS) education, English as a second language (ESL) instruction, health education, life coaching, military training, public service, etc.
