Course summary

In the MA Education (Citizenship), students explore educational, political and philosophical debates that have influenced the curriculum and the learning and teaching of citizenship in schools, colleges and related settings. Students are encouraged to critically reflect on principles, practices and issues that shape and relate to policy and professional practice in citizenship education and to develop theorized and evidence-informed perspectives on policy and practice. Students explore the key concepts involved in understanding citizenship education. They develop an understanding of contemporary issues and key research findings in citizenship education and related areas, and are supported to apply this knowledge in practice in educational settings and related contexts.

Careers

Graduates of this programme are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as teachers, senior leaders in schools in the UK and internationally, while others work in a range of other educational settings and for governments in curriculum design and related areas.

Employability

The programme develops students' ability to think critically and analytically about theory and practice in educational settings and the ability to organise and evaluate empirical and theoretical claims and arguments about educational aims and practices. Students learn to organise, evaluate and present data and argument in robust and critically informed ways and to read, design, conduct and evaluate educational research, taking account of relevant practical, theoretical and ethical issues.
