Course content

Why study this course?

The Education MA course enables you to develop a theoretical framework within which you can analyse educational issues and, where appropriate, develop your own professional practice. In the most recent (2014-15) Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 100% of graduates from this course were in work or further study within six months.

More about this course

This modular course is designed for people working in education in all sectors and others with an interest in education. It offers you the chance to plan an individual course of study, either by selecting particular modules within the MA or by taking modules that may lead to a PG Diploma or PG Certificate in Education.

The programme of study provides an introduction to higher study and to the intellectual and academic discourses associated with education as a core university discipline. It is closely linked to the actuality and educational challenges associated with the meshing of local and global in London as a world city; in consequence there is a vital and critical engagement with professional practices and with the empirical realities that attend and shape them.

Assessment

You are assessed via coursework (one essay of 6,000 words or two essays of 3,000 words) or presentations, as well as the dissertation.

  • Critical Theory and Education (core, 20 credits)
