Course content

We are delighted to introduce our new ‘Interdisciplinary Masters’, which is a bespoke programme offering each student a choice of awards, allowing them to tailor the provision to their own research interests.

The curriculum is constructed from 60-credit ‘Blocks’ of provision, from which students will choose two of the combinations permitted. Each 60-credit Block comprises of either two 30-credit or four 15-credit modules.

After completion of the taught phase, students will then embark on the research phase, whereby they will study a Research Methods module and then complete a Dissertation that synthesises the two Blocks that they have studied.

Students can combine two of the following: Developmental Psychology Disability Studies Early Childhood Education (either Education Theory or Education in Action) Education Leadership and Management Philosophy of Education Religious Education Special Educational Needs
