We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Primary Education equip postgraduates with the skills to engage with and reflect upon strategies for improving education practise and policy within primary or elementary schools.
Taught MA and MEd (Master of Education) degrees are typical for the field. Entry requirements normally include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Education or Communications.
Courses in this field are often highly interdisciplinary, combining methodologies from disciplines such as psychology, anthropology and business management. Curriculum, pedagogy and assessment are the key themes which you will examine on both national and international scales, reflecting on current professional practices.
You will examine the role of education in the community, its impact on the development of literacy and children’s rights, as well as its effects on children’s cognition and behaviour. For example, you may explore the impact of bilingualism and multilingualism on child learning, or examine ways to support children with special needs.
Careers may include working as a subject leader, assistant head teacher or head teacher within a school, or as an inspector or policy maker within a local or national agency.
