Education – MA
Attendance Full Time, Part Time
Are you a teacher, lecturer or trainer? Are you keen to boost your professional qualifications and knowledge? Or are you simply interested in the field of education? If so, this MA Education course is for you.
What’s covered in the course?
Highly flexible, this course can be studied alongside your job through our part-time route. Our Education Master’s framework allows you to choose your own path by selecting the core modules, area of specialisation and optional modules, that way you can tailor your study to suit your needs and areas of interest.
The award you receive upon graduating depends on both your existing qualifications, and the combination of modules that you choose to study. You’ll do this by studying some core modules and others which you negotiate with your tutor and the programme leader for your pathway.
The modules available explore current issues in education, leadership and management, change and improvement, as well as a flexible portfolio, reflection and research opportunities, leading to a final dissertation. Depending on the modules you take, you may be able to graduate with a specific pathway named on your degree.
The qualifications available are:
- Education (International Education)
- Education (Special Needs Education) (in collaboration with the National Institute for Conductive Education)
However, we can facilitate awards in other specialist areas of study including:
- Childhood Studies
