Course summary

On the Inclusion and Disability pathway, you will explore the main international debates and solutions associated with educational policy and practice in the areas of inclusion, disability and special educational needs (SEN).

This postgraduate degree will explore the key areas of Educational placement, curricula, pedagogy, and assessment. A central theme of this Inclusion and Disability pathway will be to examine and question how ideas, practices and values can impact on children and young people's educational inclusion and equity. There will be opportunities to examine comparative and international studies and ‘interventions’ that have a cross-cultural underpinning.

A series of core modules will provide you with the economic, historical, philosophical and sociological frameworks to help you understand the field of education and the skills required for conducting critical research whilst a range of optional modules will help you to pursue your interests and to develop knowledge and skills relevant to your own interests and practice.

The Inclusion and Disability pathway will be of particular interest to education practitioners, and policymakers, researchers and administrators who are seeking a wider and deeper grounding in debates surrounding education equity, disability and inclusion and for those seeking new and innovative ways of improving educational outcomes for specific groups of learners within a fast-changing area of education reform (internationally).

Please note that like most Masters courses, this course does not confer qualified teacher status (QTS).

Employability

The MA Education (Inclusion and Disability) course has been specially developed to appeal to professionals already working in the field, and those seeking a general introduction to topics within disability, inclusion and special educational needs. In general, graduates from this pathway pursue work with children and young people who have special educational needs, in occupations which include: teaching, education advisory, special educational needs coordination, school leadership, community and charitable organisations, support and social work, healthcare, and policy making.

You will also have the opportunity to work towards a further professional qualification in the field of Disability and Inclusion, including progression to a PhD.
