Course summary

Course description

The MA Education International (Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) course will provide you with the opportunity to engage in structured study of, and reflection upon, the application of educational theories, ideas and concepts to a range of international educational and community-based contexts.

The course has been designed for teachers and other education professionals working in a range of national and international settings, and is ideal if you're looking to develop your career by securing new posts or promotion in the area of equity, diversity and inclusion.

You'll work with an international cohort of students representing multiple unique perspectives.

The course offers a unique combination of policy and practice-based perspectives on education, and the area of equity, diversity and inclusion in education, and is taught by outstanding, world-leading researchers who focus on the realities of professional practice using the social sciences.

Aims

  • Develop participants' critical understanding of educational theories in order to enable an informed analysis of educational systems and practices in different countries.
  • Develop participants' capacity to engage in and use research to inform and develop both their practice and their understandings of differences in practice in different systems.
  • Raise participants' awareness of the influence of key concepts across international contexts, as well as the particularity of local contexts.
  • Develop participants' professional knowledge, understanding and skills in relation to their prior and emerging professional interests.
  • Enable participants to gain evaluative and analytical skills that will help them to engage critically with education policies and practices across and within national systems.

Coursework and assessment

You will study four course units in each semester, four of which are core to all students, one is core to this pathway, and three of which are optional.

The form of assessment varies by course unit; however, most involve a 3,000-word written assessment, which may be in the form of an essay, a critical review of literature, or a research report. Formative and summative feedback is provided.

The dissertation is the report of an empirical or conceptual research project investigation of an aspect of international education, and is 15,000 words in length.

Career opportunities

Graduates go on to shape education policy and practice through positions in NGOs and in the public and private sector.
