Why study Education?
Our well-established Education Master's degree is designed to meet the professional development needs of teachers and education professionals, including business managers, chaplains, librarians and data managers at any stage of their careers and in all phases of schooling or other educational contexts.
The programme enables current and aspiring middle and senior leaders to engage in critical reflection on their experience and understanding of leadership, whilst developing scholarly knowledge and linking theory with practice.
As part of this degree you'll choose modules from across our Education MA pathways. You'll also have the opportunity to explore an area of interest that's relevant to your professional role. This will be through a small-scale practitioner research enquiry, leading to evidence-informed innovation.
Why St Mary's?
This Master's degree builds on our long tradition of excellence in teacher education. The success of the programme lies in the flexible structure, bespoke delivery and quality of teaching we offer.
You'll apply your learning to practical situations within your own school. In doing so you'll use your knowledge to drive effective change, whilst critically engaging with contemporary educational debates.
You will be taught by and work with tutors who have a background in teaching, management and leadership, as well as research and consultancy.
As a St Mary's student, you'll have access to excellent online learning resources. We also have a dedicated library for education students, the Naylor library, which has numerous study spaces, IT facilities and a café.
Teaching methods include a combination of lectures, group seminars, workshops and individual tutorials. Modules are taught either at St Mary’s through intensive Saturday Schools (approximately monthly) or study days in school holidays or fortnightly twilight sessions.
Learning is assessed through a variety of methods: reflective journals; research proposals; essays, case studies; portfolios and both seminar and conference presentations.
