The MA Education & English Literature programme is an innovative Masters level education programme, which is designed to enhance the subject knowledge and pedagogical knowledge of practising teachers, educators and others who have an interest in education.
The programme will provide participants with the opportunity to research and improve their own practice, by discovering the new skills that can be gained from studying their subject specialism to an advanced academic level. This process is supported by the study of contemporary education theory, through modules designed to provide the skills and critical understanding necessary to innovate in a rapidly evolving educational landscape.
This programme emphasises education as an academic field of study and the importance of research in the development of teaching practise. It is expected that practitioners who graduate from this course will have the skills and academic knowledge that will prepare them for education in the 21st century. It has been designed for practising teachers, educators and others with a personal or professional interest in the field of education. The programme aims to provide opportunities for engagement with key theories, concepts and ideas in Education and English Literature that link to the national curriculum.
The structure of the programme is designed to meet the needs of those seeking to develop a more academic understanding of Education and English Literature. The combination of modules available allows teachers, educators and others to gain a named award and enhance their subject knowledge. The pedagogic framework provides theoretical and conceptual perspectives, including key ideas in Education and English Literature that serve to deepen the learning experience.
The English Literature route enables the development of an advanced understanding of the work of a range of authors across a variety of literary genres, and in doing so aims to inform and integrate with educators’ own work with the current GCSE and AS/A2 English curricula. Taught by academics actively engaged in research in their fields, the programme provides the opportunity to make a detailed examination of literary texts within their historical and cultural contexts, whilst also exploring a variety of theoretical approaches.
