Course summary

About the course

This specialist education pathway focuses on policies, services, child development, early years pedagogy, and research in early childhood.

The emphasis is on the years from birth to five. You will be encouraged to draw on sociocultural perspectives on childhood, government policy, relevant research and curricular approaches - and on your own experience - in examining issues related to early childhood education.

A central aim is to help early years professionals to develop a clear understanding of, and a critical perspective on, issues around early childhood studies.

MA in Education and Early Childhood can be studied one year full-time, or two years part-time.

What you'll study

You have the option of leaving the programme at the end of stage 1 with a Postgraduate Certificate in Education or at the end of stage 2 with a Postgraduate Diploma in Education as long as you have earned sufficient credits.

Future prospects

Our Masters students explore a range of current educational practice, looking at key issues and policy.

Graduates leave with reflective and practical skills and the knowledge they need to contribute to their chosen learning community.
