Course content

  • Analyses politics and policies in education.
  • Allows you to study educational topics in depth.
  • Has a strong international perspective.

Education is much more than the study of teaching. Our programme is designed to get you questioning the assumptions that lie beneath educational policy and practice. The MA in Education Studies offers a mixture of theory and reflection on practice within an international context.

This course is for both prospective teachers and non-teachers, who are looking for a new career path. If your ambition is to teach in a school, then this course would be ideally suited to you (although it is not itself a UK teaching qualification). Most of our students are attracted by the academic nature of this award, by its habit of enabling new thinking about things that seemed like common sense.

CAREER OPPORTUNITIES

Many of our graduates seek new career paths to educational management, training or in related fields. Some wish to continue their expertise in Education Studies and gain a broader and deeper view of education. Others wish to gain employment in, say, a museum or gallery setting, while others start with the intention of taking their studies further – to PhD level – and seek eventual employment in an academic institution.
