Course summary

Course description

Our MSc Deaf Education course will help you to train as a Teacher of the Deaf if you are a qualified teacher, or develop research skills that can be applied to this field.

Rapid developments in audiology and our understanding of language, communication and educational practice make teaching and learning for deaf children an exciting area of study.

The course uses an evidence-based approach to meeting the diverse needs of deaf children and places a strong emphasis on translation of theory to practice.

Our course has Department for Education (DfE) and National College of Teaching and Learning (NCTL) approval, meeting the requirements of the mandatory qualification.

You will qualify with the mandatory postgraduate diploma to equip you to work as a Qualified Teacher of the Deaf.

You will develop your research skills in the field to add to the knowledge base in Deaf Education.

Most graduating students go on to teach and support deaf children both in the UK and overseas, although there are also opportunities to continue academic research in this area.

Both MSc (part-time on-campus learning) and PGDip (full-time or part-time on-campus or blended learning) options are available. If you already have the PGDip, you can take an additional unit to gain the MSc award.

Aims

This course aims to provide you with the skills, knowledge and understanding to ensure deaf children are able to achieve their full potential.

Coursework and assessment

A variety of assessment methods are used within the PGDip, including written assignments, case reports, practical work and practical delivery of work. As part of the course, there are opportunities for formative assessments that help to shape individual studies but do not contribute to the final marks.

Career opportunities

Most graduating students progress to a career in teaching deaf children. This is a diverse remit and a teacher of the deaf may work in a school for the deaf, a unit or resourced provision, at primary or secondary level, or a specialist nursery class.

They may also act as peripatetic support to deaf learners in mainstream classes, or early years child and family support, often moving through a range of these roles throughout their career.

Career opportunities can also include a move into academic research and higher education if that is an interest.
