MA Education Studies


Course Description

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.
