Course summary

Course Overview

How do education systems reproduce, or challenge, existing inequalities? How might you intervene in education systems to promote social justice? Could you develop research-led policy agendas in your own institution?

Our stimulating MA programme immerses you in a vibrant research culture as you explore these fundamental questions and tackle a range of issues relating to social justice in education.

Studied part- or full-time over one or two years, and entirely online, the programme offers an excellent grounding in research methodologies. It offers hands-on experience of research, and the opportunity to develop a deep theoretical understanding of social justice and education, while focussing on topics of particular relevance to your own interests or professional practice. While the course is delivered online, you are welcome to participate in the department’s research activities throughout the year either face-to-face or via live-streaming, and some of our students opt to visit their tutors in person.

This MA is delivered by influential, research-active tutors and staff from our well-respected Educational Research Department which has specialised in the online delivery of postgraduate, research-oriented programmes for many years. You will benefit from their range and depth of knowledge covering areas such as gender, migration and development, globalisation, social class, disability and digitally-mediated environments.

Our MA in Education and Social Justice provides a potential route to our highly successful PhD in Education and Social Justice, as well as leading to career change or progression for professional practitioners. It carries the same prestigious academic recognition as traditionally-delivered programmes.
