Course summary

This programme will enhance your understanding of educational theory and practice by focusing on issues of culture, language and identity, and is taught by internationally-renowned experts.

Why study MA Education: Culture, Language & Identity at Goldsmiths?

This MA programme explores the significance of identity and culture in education contexts. While we draw on theories and research from other traditions, our focus is on how society and culture inform our understanding of who we are as teachers and learners, and how those identities impact on the teaching and learning process.

The programme is designed for educators at all levels, including those in informal learning contexts, and others interested more broadly in the field of education. It places a strong emphasis on student-centred and directed independent learning and research. Teaching sessions and personal tutorials focus on supporting you to bring together your reading and reflections on your own learning and teaching experiences, enabling you to develop a better informed, more critical, and more analytical approach to educational processes.

There are two pathways on the programme:

Pathway A begins in September and involves taught sessions at Goldsmiths in the evenings each term.

Pathway B begins in January and involves taught sessions at Goldsmiths and in a local school. The sessions are a mixture of evenings, and full days on Saturdays. Modules on this pathway are pre-selected for their particular relevance to practicing teachers.

Careers

The programme will enable you to develop:

  • enhanced understanding and critical awareness of educational theory and practice
  • critical reflection skills
  • research skills

Many students use their MA to help with promotion in schools and other education institutions, others go on to pursue further study. Our Careers Service is able to offer help with CVs, mock interviews and other advice both during your studies and after you graduate.
