Course summary

The MA Education is designed for those interested in Education across a broad range of contexts to utilise cutting-edge research, theory and practice to build a fairer education system for a globalised world.

This programme will be of interest to those working in, or interested in pursuing a career in, education and education research.

The MA Education (non-pathway) route will draw upon the School of Education’s principle research areas: Education for Social Justice, International and Comparative Education, Disability, Inclusion and Special Needs, and Education Leadership enabling you more choice in designing your own programme according to your particular areas of interest. Our range of compulsory and optional modules will allow you to build a programme to suit your own interests and career aspirations.

If you are looking for greater disciplinary specialism, we also offer four specialist ‘pathways’, leading to an MA Education (named pathway):

  • MA Education (Comparative and International Perspectives)
  • MA Education (Inclusion and Disability)
  • MA Education (Leadership)
  • MA Education (Social Justice)

Employability

This programme has been specially developed to appeal to graduates of social science disciplines and professionals seeking job opportunities in sectors requiring a broad range of education-focused knowledge and analytic skill. Graduates of the MA Education would have the flexibility to use modules to progress to postgraduate research programmes, or may wish to consider job opportunities in sectors requiring knowledge of domestic and international policy, education leadership and practice, inclusion and social justice, and school improvement.
