MA Education


Course Description

The MA Education programme is an exciting opportunity to join with other students in discussion and collaborative learning while being taught by a team which is highly skilled in supporting your needs as a postgraduate student.

Course detail

The course engages you with current issues and debates in education, enabling you to gain critical awareness and understanding and to develop new insights. You will engage in research and advanced scholarship in the discipline and will develop as a self-directed, independent learner who is able to deal with complex issues both systematically and creatively.

Modules

• Developing Criticality
• Methods of Enquiry
• Global Perspectives on Education
• Critical Contemporary Issues in Education in a National Context
• Local Independent Study/Project

Dissertation: Education

This module is the culmination of the MA Education. It engages students in a substantial piece of research focused on a topic that is relevant to an educational context and manageable within the time and credit constraints of a Master’s dissertation. The focus and nature of the investigation will be agreed with a supervisor.

Major Project: Education

This module is the culmination of the MA Education. It engages students in a substantial piece of research investigation and artefact development on a topic relevant to an educational context and manageable within the time and credit constraints of a Master’s dissertation. The focus, nature of the investigation and intended output will be negotiated and agreed with a supervisor. For example, through your second year studies you may have developed a particular interest which you wish to pursue further. Enterprise education was the example given above for illustrative purposes and so taking this example further, the student decides to focus the final study on social enterprises and new models of education between social entrepreneurs and schools. S/he chooses the major project option rather than the dissertation option as this allows scope to include artefacts in written, aural or visual form alongside the written component.
