Course content

Through critical thinking, this master's degree seeks to understand the relationship between learning environments and wider societal and cultural influences.

You'll have the opportunity to study in a stimulating research-informed environment, taught by lecturers who are experts in their field.

The course is broad in its theoretical scope. Drawing on cross-cultural and global perspectives, you will have the opportunity, in theory and in practice, to critically reflect on your own working practices.

The Education, Culture and Society degree has been specially designed for professionals working in education-related fields, for example: teachers; youth workers; those working in the public sector with families and children; and non-government organisations in both UK and abroad.

The programme is equally suitable for those who wish to dedicate time to either changing the focus of their career, or who are considering a career in academia.

With both full and part-time modes of study, the programme is suitable to those who wish to complete the course in one year and those who wish to combine studying with work.
