Course content

Our Education, Policy & Society MA is an interdisciplinary course which draws on sociology, political science, economics and history to address the challenges of education policy and provision. It will give you a deep understanding of educational policy and processes in relation to issues of race, social class, gender and changes such as globalisation and new managerialism.

This course provides an opportunity for policy text analysis and comparative policy study. The course will be suitable for you no matter the level at which you teach, lecture or organise educational provision. You will learn about significant current developments in contemporary pedagogical policy and practice, enabling you to reflect on your own practice and extend your knowledge.
