Course summary

Overview

Newman has expanded its master’s-level provision aimed specifically at educational professionals, teachers, lecturers and others working in educational settings in support roles in recognition of the importance of sustained professional development.

Course content

Newman offers you the opportunity to enhance your professional knowledge, understanding and skills by developing and implementing systematic professional enquiry and research.

You can also expect to further develop your knowledge, understanding, and skills in curriculum development. The course promotes critical engagement in a range of contemporary issues pertinent to specific interests and needs and you are encouraged to explore your own personal and professional interests and expertise. If you wish to progress your studies even further then the course provides an appropriate academic platform for progression to PhD/EdD study.

Attendance

Modules are based at Newman, usually delivered one evening per week. However, if there are significant numbers of staff in one institution wishing to undertake the programme we can deliver the programme on your site at times convenient to you.

Part-time students (2-3 yr route) have a maximum period of study of 5 years to complete an MA. However, an MA is typically completed over 2-3 years and we recommend that part-time students take 60 credits per year (i.e. 2×30 credit modules across the year). Part-time students (1-1.5 yr route) have a maximum period of study of 3 years to complete an MA, but typically complete an MA in 18 months.

Assessment

You will experience a range of work-based assessment formats including portfolios, presentations, written reports and essays, work-based studies and practical tasks. The course will recognise your needs as a learner and develop independent study skills that are transferable to a range of learning situations and assessment tasks.
