This award provides the opportunity to engage with theoretical perspectives and research in the field of inclusion and disability, both nationally and globally. Read more
This award provides the opportunity to engage with theoretical perspectives and research in the field of inclusion and disability, both nationally and globally. The programme is relevant to both UK and *international applicants and starts from the premise that terms, such as inclusion, disability and special needs are contestable.

Students are encouraged to critically engage in those social, political and global debates relating to the education of marginalised groups of children and young people.

The question of how can education promote greater equity in an increasingly diverse society is central to the award. In this way the MA provides outstanding professional development for those working in education, enabling them to deepen their understanding of how to develop more inclusive practice within their own professional setting or country context.

Sessions are led by highly qualified tutors from the Faculty's Education and Social Research Institute who have relevant expertise and professional experience.

About the Course

In term one, students take two core units. The unit 'Introduction to Educational and Social Research Design' is interconnected with the other full time Masters awards in the Postgraduate Research in Education, Community and Society programme and enables, from the outset, a consideration of the ways in which knowledge is generated in the field of inclusive education and disability.

The second core unit 'Understanding Inclusive Education' provides opportunities for students to reflect on their understandings of disability and special educational needs and to consider alternative approaches in the context of recent research on inclusion and diversity in education.

In term two, students are able to choose two options from the selection below:
-Collaborative Research Project
-Globalisation, Social Justice and Social Change
-Identity, Equality and Empowerment in Childhood
-Independent Study
-Key Issues in Managing Diversity, Disability and Special Educational Needs
-Practice Based Project
-Transformative and Ethical Leadership in Educational Settings

Taught units offered develop students' ability to critically engage with published research and to develop their own research skills in support of their own fields of interest. The option unit, ‘Key Issues in Managing Diversity, Disability and Special Educational Needs’ examines issues of exclusion and marginalisation, disability and difference, race and culture. Here, there is a focus is on critical issues for equity and diversity rather than on particular categories of need. Drawing from such fields as critical pedagogy, disability studies and multicultural education, the unit explores critical theory and research and examines a range of alternative approaches to promoting social justice in education.

Every student undertakes a (60 credit) dissertation, allowing in-depth and extended study in an area of interest and relevance.

Throughout the award, students are encouraged to pursue their own areas of interest using analysis, reflection and evaluation. Interconnecting themes across the option units (for example, promoting equality of opportunity, valuing diversity and developing understanding of social justice) allow students to choose units that reflect their own academic interests and connect with their particular professional context whilst still retaining academic relevance with the award.

Assessment details

Assessments are based around your workplace and relevant to your own practice. All assessed work is returned to students with both formative and summative comments, which are intended to present clear guidance for future assessment. There are no formal examinations.
