Course summary

Overview

This flexible programme is aimed at educators and education professionals that want to gain additional knowledge and skills to help improve their practice through a highly personalised programme of master's level study.

You’ll select the majority of your credits from modules that interest you across the School of Education, giving you the opportunity to pursue a broad range of interests and focus on the topics that suit your personal career ambitions.

Through your core modules, you’ll build your knowledge of educational research methods and data analysis, and apply what you’ve learnt to your own dissertation on a related topic of your choosing.

Course content

The programme allows you to draw on expertise from many different areas of education including leadership and policy, digital tools and technology enhanced learning, development in childhood and youth, special educational needs, and language education among other topics to tailor your studies to your own interests.

You’ll also develop your skills with a choice of modules focused on educational research and data analysis as well as completing two core modules focusing on research methods and completing an independently researched dissertation with support from your appointed supervisor.

Throughout your study, you’ll improve your skills in communication, leadership, research, data collection, analysis and evaluation – all vital for a career in the education sector.

Learning and teaching

We use a variety of learning and teaching methods including weekly seminars, group learning, tutorials, fieldwork, online learning and lectures. The methods of teaching and learning that you will encounter depend on which specific modules you choose. Independent study is also vital, as it allows you to pursue your interests and develop high-level skills, supported by our excellent library resources.

Assessment

Most assessment is by written essay. Occasionally, we use other assessment approaches, such as poster presentations or reflective logs.

Career opportunities

As a student of MA Education, you will already have a footing in the field of education. Throughout this programme, you’ll further your knowledge and expertise in your areas of interest, and develop skills in research and analysis that you will then be able to take forward into your professional practice. Some students may also decide to pursue further research at PhD or EdD level.
