Course content

The MA Special Needs and Inclusion will help you gain the necessary understanding, from a theoretical point of view, to become a more effective practitioner in the whole-of-life special needs sector. This course is designed to support rigorous and critical development by exploring the interfaces between theory, practice and policy for people with special needs by a number of social agencies (such as social care, health care, education and technological support) from before birth to death.

The MA Special Educational Needs and Inclusion is a distinct course designed to meet the growing need for professionals to have the skills and theoretical understanding necessary to work in different fields and across the life span.

The course provides a stepping stone to both professional leadership responsibilities and to doctoral study, such as our EdD or PhD programmes.
