This course is suitable for you if you have a background in education or are seeking to understand education within its broad contexts. Read more
This course is suitable for you if you have a background in education or are seeking to understand education within its broad contexts. It encourages you to link theoretical and practical understanding of issues in education, while developing generic knowledge, skills and understanding of the questions involved in conceptualising and designing educational research.

Core modules in Foundation Research Methods and Teaching, Learning and Assessment lay the foundations for developing your research skills and understanding of education contexts. You may then select two further optional modules from the CES portfolio, to suit your own interests. You’ll also complete a dissertation under the supervision of a member of academic staff.

Past students have developed their teaching careers and pursued work in various educational establishments and community ventures, both in the UK and abroad.

Course aims and benefits

This course will help you to understand better the theories, practicalities and significance of educational issues, whilst also enabling you to develop an appreciation for the role that research plays in illuminating these. We aim to help you to identify and meet your professional and personal development needs through a flexible bank of modules and informed advice in choosing your dissertation topic. You will have the opportunity to debate with your peers on a host of important education issues, such as:
-What is a successful school and how would you recognise one?
-Why is it that for most pupils school is a rich and rewarding experience, yet pupils from poor backgrounds achieve less well than their counterparts at every ability level in the English education system?
-Could – and should – the National Curriculum for education be replaced by an individual curriculum for every child?
-Should the information from international education league tables inform education systems or drive them?

Course structure

You will complete a core module in Foundation Research Methods (30 CATS) that will provide research training for the course, plus either the Teaching, Learning and Assessment (30 CATS) module, or the Education, Policy and Society (30CATS) module, depending on whether you have prior knowledge of the UK education system. You may then select two optional modules (30 CATS each) from the modules offered across the taught MA programmes within the Centre for Education Studies to suit your needs and interests. You will then complete a 20,000 word dissertation under the supervision of a member of our well-published academic staff (60 CATS).

Combining recent developments in drama education, second language acquisition and ELT methodology, this course offers an innovative approach to teaching drama as a key way of promoting learning and language acquisition in more creative and personalised ways. Read more
Combining recent developments in drama education, second language acquisition and ELT methodology, this course offers an innovative approach to teaching drama as a key way of promoting learning and language acquisition in more creative and personalised ways. It is taught in conjunction with the Centre for Applied Linguistics, which has a particular expertise in ELT.

Balancing the study and practice of drama and ELT as both academic and practical subjects, it is suitable for experienced teachers interested in combining both disciplines (Drama and English Language Teaching) at Master’s level, or for teachers of English as a Foreign Language. You’ll examine how drama can motivate your students, improve their speaking confidence, and enable them to use language in cultural contexts, as well as improving your teacher-student relationships.

Core modules develop and extend your understanding of key approaches to Second Language Acquisition (SLA) and English Language Learning (ELT), and provide a solid grounding in drama techniques and approaches. You’ll also complete a dissertation based on an individual research project, with support from a member of academic staff.

Course structure

Students will split the taught aspects of the course between the Centre for Education Studies and the Centre for Applied Linguistics.

-The Role of Story in Drama & Theatre Education
-Drama and Literacy
-ELT Methodology for pre-experience students
OR
-Issues and Research in ELT for post-experience students

Designed to help you develop your practical skills and theoretical knowledge of drama education, this MA is aimed at practitioners working in both schools and colleges, and community and educational theatre settings. Read more
Designed to help you develop your practical skills and theoretical knowledge of drama education, this MA is aimed at practitioners working in both schools and colleges, and community and educational theatre settings.

There is a balance between the study and practice of drama as a subject in schools and colleges, and the wider use of drama for personal and community purposes. Teaching is built around practical workshops, which give you hands-on experience of drama, as well as providing ideas and techniques for use in your own workplace.

A core module in Drama and Creative Learning explores the role of drama and theatre as a means of encouraging creative learning. Optional modules unique to this course comprise Drama and Theatre in Theory and Practice, The Role of Story in Drama and Theatre Education, and Drama and Literacy. You’ll also complete a supervised independent research project and associated dissertation.

Course structure

You will study four modules (30 CATS each) intended to develop your subject knowledge, pedagogical skills and understanding of drama’s cultural importance as well as its educational significance. One of these is a core module, and you must take at least two of the remaining three course specific optional modules (however most students choose to take all the specialist modules). The final element of your study will be a dissertation (60 CATS) with integrated research methods learning. This will be your individual research project, and you will receive one-to-one support from your academic supervisor.

Course delivery and learning styles

All of the modules provide a balance between practical experience of a wide range of drama and theatre practices and a planned reading programme. The weekly sessions are built around practical workshops led by the programme tutors, invited guests, and students themselves. These workshop opportunities are designed to give students a hands-on experience of drama as well as methods and ideas for using drama and theatre in their own workplace. The course is taught mainly in afternoon sessions of three hours in length.

If you’re an education professional, this course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to research different educational settings, identify potential problems and provide innovative solutions to improve practice. Read more
If you’re an education professional, this course will equip you with the knowledge and skills to research different educational settings, identify potential problems and provide innovative solutions to improve practice. It will encourage you to become a critical, reflective and innovative practitioner.

The course is aimed primarily at teachers interested in developing innovative practice. Although you will be enrolled onto the standard MA Educational Innovation course, some students choose to pursue a specialism, such as Primary, Further Education, or Special Educational Needs. Specialisms are dependent
on availability and prior qualifications and previously gained CATS can often be used for accreditation of prior learning towards this course (please email the Department to enquire about your area of interest).

You’ll complete a final project/dissertation preceded by one of the core research method modules. You can then choose the remaining three modules (if you are not bringing prior learning accreditation) from a selection within the Centre for Education Studies that align with your own specialism. If you choose at least 90 CATS in a recognised specialism (including the dissertation), it is possible to have the specialism added to your degree title e.g. Educational Innovation (with Specialism in Special Educational Needs).
