Overview

The MA Education is designed to enhance your professional practice and help you make improvements which will make a positive difference either within the classroom or your particular work environment.

Highly flexible, it caters for educators with a diverse range of experience, development needs, and study requirements. It is suitable for teachers, those in leadership or policy-making roles, and other practitioners working in education or related settings.

You may choose an individually constructed programme, or follow a specialist route which may be reflected in your degree title. You may study full-time or part-time, and choose to study on campus or via blended or distance learning. You may also study single modules through our Professional Development in Education programme (http://socialsciences.exeter.ac.uk/education/graduatestudies/masters/professionaldevelopmentineducation/ ) .

Whichever route you choose, you will be taught by academics with considerable experience as practitioners, and whose research sets the agenda, influences policy and leads to innovation in the classroom.

Programme structure

The modules you take will depend on whether you are undertaking an individually constructed programme or wish to graduate with a named specialism within your degree title.

Learning and teaching

Delivery: campus-based/distance learning/blended learning:

As a Masters level student you will become part of the research-intensive Graduate School of Education, studying with some of the leading scholars in their disciplines. Depending on the modules you choose, the following options are available:
- Campus-based (entirely at our St Luke’s Campus)
- Distance learning (online only)
- Blended learning (mixture of campus-based, mostly Saturdays, and online learning)

Learning methods include lectures, seminars, workshops, peer-led activity, and online resources and interaction. Some modules also involve studio and classroom work, field trips, and school visits. Visit the web pages for each specialism to find out more.

Specialist pathways include:

- Individually constructed programme
- Creative Arts in Education
- Language and Literacy
- Mathematics Education
- Science Education
- Special Educational Needs
- Technology, Creativity and Thinking

Individually constructed programme

The main reason our students undertake postgraduate study is because they want to become better teachers and practitioners so they can help their students realise their potential. This programme gives you the flexibility to improve various aspects of your professional practice and to choose a course of study most suitable to your role, employer’s priorities, career-stage or interests (http://www.exeter.ac.uk/postgraduate/taught/education/educationma/individual/ ).

Creative Arts in Education

The creative arts provide opportunities for developing creative and aesthetic understanding, finding a personal and communal voice within different cultural contexts, and are linked to improvements in academic achievement.
This specialism will help you encourage creativity via the arts, understand the variety of roles the arts in education might take, and consider how arts teaching can benefit other areas of the curriculum and promote inclusion. Unique in integrating approaches to drama, music, dance and visual art, this MA includes visits to schools and venues such as galleries, as well as interactions with key cultural organisations. You may also specialise in a particular art form. (http://www.exeter.ac.uk/postgraduate/taught/education/educationma/creativearts/ )
