Our Masters in Education is a unique modular programme of study designed to support both individual and organisational development. It is possible within the programme to focus on the following specific pathways:
- Human Relations
- Special Needs
- Educational Leadership and Management
- Higher Education
- Learning, Technology and Education
In addition there are Local and Regional History modules designed for students actively involved in teaching history in schools and colleges.
Further free standing modules include:
- Understanding Curriculum, Learning and Assessment
- Learning Through an Additional Language (EAL/CLIL)
While each subject area has its own unique focus, all are concerned with investigating contemporary educational issues in the light of economic 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 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 you and your organisation.
A hallmark of the MA in 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 exit points en-route to a full Masters progamme
• a range of pathways and module options to create a personally and professionally meaningful qualification;
• a range of modes of delivery to take account of individual needs and professional contexts.
