The Department of Education offers a one-year full-time (12 month) MA in Education programme.
The main focus of the MA in Education (MAE) is its emphasis on educational research and the grounding it provides students for conducting their own small-scale research projects in a wide range of educational settings. Such studies can focus on current developments in education and issues of immediate concern to students themselves. As such, as well as providing a coherent and satisfying educational experience in its own right, the MAE can serve as an excellent introduction to work at PhD level. Applicants are strongly advised to ensure that they submit applications no later than 1 September if they wish to begin a course of study beginning in the same year. No guarantee can be offered that applications received after this date will be processed for a September start date. The programme is particularly suited to teachers at primary, secondary or tertiary levels, who already have some experience and wish to pursue research related to issues of policy or practice in their own teaching and learning contexts.
