This programme provides the broad preparation needed for work in education policy. The teaching methods emphasise dealing with applied issues and facilitate your development as a critical thinker through engaging with real life issues.
This interdisciplinary programme draws on sociology, political science and economics to provide rigorous and broad grounding in theory for studying education as a vital component of public policy.
You will explore how equity in education influences equity in society and vice versa. Educational disadvantage and inequity do not exist in isolation from other forms of disadvantage. Therefore the programme critically analyses the ability of education policy to influence wider social issues.
The programme places joint emphasis on qualitative and quantitative analytical methods, which are reinforced through application to real policy issues under the guidance of experienced tutors.
You will be taught by an international and interdisciplinary team of academics, who combine subject expertise with practical experience in education and public policy. The programme's applied focus is reinforced and explored through external speakers and a study trip.
The teaching and assessment methods emphasise working critically with complex arguments. This will prepare you for the normative judgements required by decision makers once the limits of positive analysis have been reached.
You should have a 2.1 honours degree or equivalent (e.g. 3.0 GPA) in education, social sciences, business, law, public administration, or other related subject.International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Masters courses.
