Course content

Advance your knowledge of young children’s learning and development and learn more about principles, practice and professionalism. Explore areas of personal interest in early childhood education and care whilst also enhancing your research skills, with the opportunity to visit different early years settings.

If you have a degree in early childhood studies, pre-school education or a related subject, our MA offers a great opportunity to explore aspects of young children’s lives in more depth, examining current policies and practices to build on your existing knowledge. If that’s you, why not take this opportunity to boost your skills and knowledge? You’ll be able to link your newly-learned theories and research with your practice from the start, boosting your contribution to your future workplace and enhancing your career prospects. Taught by experienced tutors who are passionate about using insights from research to enhance the lives of young children and their families, you’ll focus on early childhood education from birth until eight years old and graduate with a valuable postgraduate qualification.

It provides a highly relevant professional development opportunity for you whether you’re an early years or pre-school teacher, a manager in a childcare setting, a family support worker or an early years consultant. It’s also a great starting point if you’re looking for a career in academia and is a step towards a PhD or EdD.
