Masters degrees in Special Needs Education offer training in the alternative teaching methods used to assist individuals with special needs and disabilities, across all levels of education.
Taught MA courses are typical for the field, though research-based MRes and MPhil programmes may be available at some institutions. Shorter qualifications such as Postgraduate Certificates and Diplomas may be more suited to current professionals wishing to expand their Special Needs Education (SEN) knowledge.
Courses in this field explore the pedagogical theory and practical techniques used to improve learning and academic efficiency for students with learning difficulties, illnesses or other disabilities.
From primary and secondary schools, to further and higher education, you will examine the governance, curriculum standards, and learning processes aimed at teaching and assisting disabled individuals.
Careers in this field are highly varied and often very rewarding, with the chance to make a real difference to disadvantaged pupils and students. Traditional roles include support services within education institutions, consultancy for schools and universities regarding special needs policy, and positions within funding bodies which assist disabled students.
Other careers may include improving access for special needs individuals in alternative educational formats, such as museums, publishing, and childcare services.
