Course content

Education Studies is concerned with understanding how people develop and learn throughout their lives, the nature of knowledge, and critical engagement with ways of knowing and understanding.

This programme offers an intellectually rigorous analysis of educational processes, systems and approaches, and their cultural, societal, political, historical and economic contexts. Postgraduates are able to participate in, and contest, changing discourses exemplified by reference to debate about values, personal and social engagement and how these relate to communities and societies.

Students have opportunities to develop their critical capabilities through the selection, analysis and synthesis of relevant perspectives, and to be able to justify different positions on educational matters. This award provides the knowledge, understanding and critical analysis to inform current and future professionals in education, for different areas and contexts.

The full time MA Education Studies is normally timetabled for teaching on two days a week (currently Tuesdays and Thursdays), with additional independent, guided study requirements.

We welcome applications from non-EU internationals for the full-time route and students are suported at every stage by MMU International.

About the Course

Our MA Education Studies is part of the Postgraduate Research in Education, Community and Society programme. We also have a large number of student-professionals studying on our part time Postgraduate Professional Development Programme.

This means, you will join a lively and forward-thinking postgraduate taught community in the Faculty of Education of over a thousand full and part-time taught postgraduate students. We run some wider events for all our postgraduate taught students, such as the Methodology Fair, where there are multiple opportunities to network, and that provide enhanced opportunities for learning at postgraduate level.

Assessment details

You will be assessed through a variety of coursework driven modules. There are no formal examinations for this course. Taught sessions are mainly conducted during weekdays. In addition to the taught sessions, you are expected to work independently.
