Course summary

The MA Education (Science) aims to reflect contemporary theory in all aspects of practice in science education: international, formal and informal. Participants study with an international group and tutors are leaders in their research fields. The MA Education (Science) will increase understanding of the academic theory of both education and science education. It enables students to critically evaluate research and development in the field, apply scientific ideas to the practice of science education in formal and informal contexts and give insights into contemporary developments in science education. Attendance is different for each module. Generally, it is once a week for the term (virtually or face-to-face). E.g. Attendance for Foundations in Science Education is every evening for 10 weeks.;

Careers

Graduates of this programme are currently working across a broad range of areas: teachers and lecturers in all phases of formal education, primary, secondary and tertiary; researchers; policymakers; the informal education sector such as museums and science centres.

Employability

Students will develop their research skills over the duration of the course where they will be able to critically evaluate research and development in the field. Those that are practicing teachers or educators will develop their skill set as a teacher by linking theory to practice and engaging in a range of different perspectives related to science education.
