Course summary

The MA Education is designed for those interested in Education across a broad range of contexts to utilise cutting-edge research, theory and practice to build a fairer education system for a globalised world.

This programme will be of interest to those working in, or interested in pursuing a career in, education and education research.

The MA Education (non-pathway) route will draw upon the School of Education’s principle research areas: Education for Social Justice, International and Comparative Education, Disability, Inclusion and Special Needs, and Education Leadership enabling you more choice in designing your own programme according to your particular areas of interest. Our range of compulsory and optional modules will allow you to build a programme to suit your own interests and career aspirations.

If you are looking for greater disciplinary specialism, we also offer four specialist ‘pathways’, leading to an MA Education (named pathway):

  • MA Education (Comparative and International Perspectives)
  • MA Education (Inclusion and Disability)
  • MA Education (Leadership)
  • MA Education (Social Justice)

Please note that like most Masters programmes, this programme does not confer qualified teacher status (QTS).

The programme is delivered through a combination of face-to-face lectures, smaller-group seminars, workshops, self-study, and peer group learning. We utilise a range of digital and virtual approaches in our teaching, and you will have access to our online teaching and learning tools, including our Virtual Learning Environment. Readings and resources are made available through our online ‘Resource Lists’ system making it very easy to identify and access key readings. Module tutors make activities available online for you to engage prior to face-to-face teaching and the majority of assignments tasks can be submitted via the Virtual Learning Environment – including dissertations. Assessments on this programme will include written essays, small independent projects, oral presentation and a dissertation on a topic of your choice.
