Successfully completing our MA Education will enhance your employability skills and ability to move within the education sector. The award will strengthen your understanding of educational issues and the knowledge required for a number of professional roles.

The MA Education aims to meet the growing need for advanced academic and subject-specific training in a broad educational context. The option of specific pathways enables you to select areas of interest to support your future employment goals.

The course focuses on developing your practice in relation to the needs of your professional setting. All modules have been designed to support your teaching and associated educational leadership practice in a wide range of workplace environments. This might be in a school, college, local authority, public service or community setting.

On successful completion of study, we will issue the following award: MA Education

Work placements

Although not compulsory, you’re encouraged to secure a placement in a relevant educational setting for approximately one day per week. This could be an early years setting, a primary or secondary school, a college or university, or another educational environment.

The placement could be linked to a potential employment opportunity in a sector that you wish to gain new experiences in. However, it can be purely voluntary. Completing a placement will enhance your professional development and help provide context to your studies. The MA Education does not lead to Qualified Teacher Status.

We have a good range of contacts across the education sector. Tutors will support you in finding suitable placement opportunities.

Course content

This course has been designed to enable you to qualify with a Master’s degree in just one year. During the first and second semesters you’ll complete four 30-credit modules (two per semester: one compulsory and one optional). In the final semester, you’ll complete a 60-credit dissertation.

Core modules cover Learning and Assessment, and Collaborative Working in Education. Option modules cover Education, Culture and Society; Educational Leadership and Management; International Perspectives in Early Years; and Contemporary Issues in Early Years.

The research dissertation reports on empirical research findings, analyses those findings and makes recommendations relating to professional practice.

Careers

This award is focused on professional development and is therefore suitable if you’re planning to work in various educational settings, such as galleries, museums, visitor centres and offender settings.

Once you’ve achieved your Master’s degree, you’ll have the opportunity to progress to our PhD and EdD awards – Doctoral-level programmes aimed at helping you develop your capabilities even further.
