Course content

An interdisciplinary approach to re-thinking and re-imagining educational policies and principles.
As education becomes increasingly globalised, schools and education systems around the world are being shaped and reshaped by what are often a common set of global education policies and ideologies.
The MSc Education, Policy and Society is an opportunity to take an interdisciplinary approach to re-thinking and re-imagining educational practices and principles. Sectors covered include childhood, primary, secondary and post-secondary education, as well as informal learning contexts.
This programme explores the sociology of education and is ideal for those who want to develop their capacity to critically analyse educational practice, policy and ideology. It will help you develop a clearer “big picture” understanding of the broader structures and forces that are affecting schools, universities and education systems today and to find out about and deepen your understanding of alternative ways of thinking about and doing education.
Our students include those who have recently completed undergraduate courses of study, as well as individuals currently working as practitioners, whether in schools, colleges or universities, youth or community groups, international development organisations, workforce and skills development programmes, researching education contexts, or in different levels of government.
