Why study MA Education: Culture, Language & Identity at Goldsmiths?

This MA programme explores the significance of identity and culture in education contexts. While we draw on theories and research from other traditions, our focus is on how society and culture inform our understanding of who we are as teachers and learners, and how those identities impact on the teaching and learning process.

The programme is designed for educators at all levels, including those in informal learning contexts, and others interested more broadly in the field of education. It places a strong emphasis on student-centred and directed independent learning and research. Teaching sessions and personal tutorials focus on supporting you to bring together your reading and reflections on your own learning and teaching experiences, enabling you to develop a better informed, more critical, and more analytical approach to educational processes.

There are two pathways on the programme:

Pathway A begins in September and involves taught sessions at Goldsmiths in the evenings each term.

Pathway B begins in January and involves taught sessions at Goldsmiths and in a local school. The sessions are a mixture of evenings, and full days on Saturdays. Modules on this pathway are pre-selected for their particular relevance to practicing teachers.
