The well-established MA Education (Innovation in Learning and Teaching) has been running since 1995 and is regularly updated in order to reflect the changing needs of participants and potential participants.

This postgraduate course in Education consists of a number of specialist pathways and is for a range of professional backgrounds including teachers, lecturers and managers in the further education sector; speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, midwives and members of the armed forces and police service.

Lecturers will work with you to put together a course specifically tailored to meet your professional needs. On your chosen pathway, you will have the opportunity to engage critically with the theories and practices of education with a view to applying your learning to your own practice.

During your MA Education studies, if you decide to focus on one of the areas you have studied at module level, there is the possibility for you to transfer onto one of the specialist awards available.

What you will study

On all pathways within the MA Education (Innovation in Learning & Teaching) programme, you must take the core module Research Methodology. This module will equip you to carry out a small scale education enquiry ethically and effectively. You are then free to choose three other modules from the wide selection available within the MA Education programme.

MA Education (Innovation in Learning & Teaching) pathways include:

Awards are available at Postgraduate Certificate level (after completion of two taught modules) and Postgraduate Diploma level (after completion of four taught modules). Full MA awards require you to complete a 17,000 word research dissertation and a 3,000 word dissemination plan after the taught programmes.

Teaching

Most students following the part-time programme spend 2 years on the taught modules (typically one evening per week) and undertake their dissertation in their third year. Participants are, however, allowed to take a maximum of 5 years to complete the whole programme.

Full-time students are able to complete the whole programme within 12 months, although some take a little longer to finish writing up their dissertation.

Assessment

In most cases modules are assessed through a 5,000 word written piece of coursework. Progress on to the dissertation is dependent upon successful completion of the taught modules.

Careers

A Masters degree is required for professional advancement in numerous occupations, and is widely seen as evidence of a successful commitment to high level professional development. The broad award of MA Education indicates you have acquired skills and knowledge across a range of different areas.

If you are interested in the possibility of a higher degree by research, your tutors will be pleased to discuss the opportunities for doing so here.
