Course summary

Overview

The MA Special Educational Needs and Inclusion programme is for those wishing to deepen their knowledge, practice and professional skills in the fields of Special Educational Needs, Disability and Inclusion. The programme equips you with skills for application in various professional contexts. The rich curriculum is a strength of our programme; content draws upon the most recent evidenced-based practices and policies for inclusion and issues of debate nationally and internationally.

Course Details

The MA in Special Educational Needs and Inclusion is made up of modules which help you to critically reflect on debates relating to inclusive practice in a variety of settings and contexts. You will be able to choose from a selection of optional modules so you can study what interests you most.

All of the modules are equivalent to 30 Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS) points, apart from the Research Thesis (EDUM100) which is 60 CATS points and is compulsory if you are studying for the MA. This module includes taught aspects of research methods as well as an independent piece of research.

How will I learn?

All of the teaching for this course is in small group format, such as seminars and workshops, enabling you to engage in discussion and debate. This course is taught as interactive sessions, with a focus on active engagement and discussion.

You will also be able to attend research seminars, day courses and other university activities. Underpinning all of what we teach is the linking of theory and practice, allowing you to critically reflect on work-based issues, concerns and developments.

How will I be assessed?

Our assessment procedures are flexible and work around your personal interests and professional workloads. Assessment is usually in the form of essays, case studies, portfolios, presentations, reports and research projects.
