The MA Education is a unique modular and flexible programme designed to reflect the needs of individuals or organisational cohorts.
While each module has its own particular focus, all are concerned with investigating contemporary educational issues in the light of historical, political and social contexts, appropriate literature and the shared experience of course members.
The overall purpose of the Masters programmes is to deepen and refine your capacity for critical reflection on your practice as well as on the mental models which inform your work. Systematic practitioner inquiry is therefore an organising principle that underpins all modules on the programme, and you will be encouraged to identify issues that are significant to your professional practice.
A hallmark of the MA Education is its commitment to equity and diversity, and its flexibility to meet the needs of individuals and organisations. Flexibility is evident in terms of offering students a range of:
- specialist module options to create a personally and professionally meaningful qualification
- modes of delivery to take account of individual needs and professional contexts
- exit points en-route to a full Masters programme
- The School of Education is one of the largest and most respected education departments of any UK university, leading the way in research and teaching quality.
- Our academics are major national and international figures, in a wide variety of subject areas.
