Explore the contested nature of education by considering ideas from the philosophy, sociology, politics and history of education to develop a deeper understanding of the role of education in society.
Our masters course challenges you to think more critically about education. You’ll consider the nature and role of education in global times, its relation to society and whether it can promote social justice and engagement.
Some of the topics you might critically analyse include place-based education; education and the global economy and gender and race inequality in education.
You might choose to study the Practice Based Project, where you’ll have the opportunity to explore and reflect on practice in an educational setting (from museums to schools) to enhance your own expertise.
