Course summary

The MA Education encourages and enables students to think deeply and critically about education as a field of study. Our stimulating programme supports students to begin to articulate, explain and justify their own position within this complex and diverse field. This programme supports beginning educational researchers and practitioners to make a contribution to the field of education studies based on a grounded understanding of their own position. To do this it introduces such themes as curriculum, pedagogy, assessment, relationships between education and society, and the importance of education research, whilst encouraging students to relate these to their own contexts.

Careers

Graduates from the MA Education have gone on to be successful in a wide variety of contexts related to education. Those already teaching have often been promoted, sometimes to senior leadership positions. Others have found new opportunities in a different educational phase (from early years through to higher education) or in education policy or research. Some graduates go on to work internationally on education and development projects, whilst others have developed plans to open their own schools. A good number of graduates undertake further research on PhD programmes.

Employability

MA Education students develop a wide range of skills including the ability to: Think critically; Apply principles from one context to another; Build logical and balanced arguments based on careful consideration of evidence; Offer creative solutions to complex problems; Frame research questions, gather evidence and analyse it; Express ideas clearly in both writing and speaking.
