Course summary

Overview

Education is a discipline, encompassing many elements including concepts of teaching, learning and pedagogy. Understanding how people learn and are educated is a subject of great depth and variety. In fact, learning and education is not uniformly understood worldwide and can vary from country to country, region to region and culture to culture.

Whether you’re an experienced teacher looking to acquire a higher academic qualification, and progress in the profession, someone with a keen interest in the subject of education or wishing to change to a more educational career route, this course will take you on a rich learning journey of your own.

The Education MA is designed to develop your knowledge, skills and confidence in the subject of education. The programme will provide opportunities for you to develop knowledge and understanding of key theories, concepts and methodologies in the study of education.

The aim of the course is to help you understand the different disciplinary perspectives that inform the field of education, to engage in critical discussion on current issues and contemporary educational questions and to encourage global perspectives on educational policy and practice.

Careers and your future

The Education MA will enhance your employment and career opportunities in complex professional environments that require sound judgement, personal responsibility and initiative.

Possible career destinations include a range of informal and formal learning organisations, such as local authorities, industry, art galleries, theme parks, museums, charities and companies offering educational or training services to staff or customers.

If you successfully complete your Education MA and would like to consider further study in education, perhaps PGCE teacher training, a taught Doctorate of Education or a research based PhD, you will be warmly encouraged by the department with the opportunity of discounted fees as a Brunel graduate.
