Education MA


Course Description

The Education MA course enables you to develop a theoretical framework within which you can analyse educational issues and, where appropriate, develop your own professional practice.

About the course

This modular course is designed for people working in education in all sectors and others with an interest in education. It offers you the chance to plan an individual course of study, either by selecting particular modules within the MA or by taking modules that may lead to a PG Diploma or PG Certificate in Education.

The programme of study provides an introduction to higher study and to the intellectual and academic discourses associated with education as a core university discipline. It is closely linked to the actuality and educational challenges associated with the meshing of local and global in London as a world city; in consequence there is a vital and critical engagement with professional practices and with the empirical realities that attend and shape them.

Assessment

You are assessed via coursework (one essay of 6,000 words or two essays of 3,000 words) or presentations, as well as the dissertation.

Modular structure

For the MA, students will take six taught modules and submit a triple-module dissertation. MA dissertations are 15,000-20,000 words, equivalent to three modules. Topics are chosen in consultation with the course leader and supervised by an appropriate member of staff.

Core modules:

Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment
Critical Theory and Education
Research Methods in Education
MA Education Dissertation
Optional modules

Specialist Study Module (Examples include Bilingualism and Education: the Classroom and School Context; Children’s Literature in Education; Educational Approaches to Inclusion and Social Justice; Childhood, Education, Spaces; and Citizenship and Education)
Applying Learning Technologies
Web-based Learning and Teaching

After the course

The course will be of benefit to anyone with an interest in education, whether as a parent, teacher, researcher, community worker or education administrator. Recent graduates have gone on to careers in the education sector as deputy head teachers, special needs teachers, and behaviour management co-ordinators.
