Course content

The MSc Deaf Education (full course) provides an opportunity to develop research skills within the field of deaf education as well as providing training for qualified teachers who want to work within deaf education. It provides an evidence-based approach to meeting the diverse needs of deaf children.

The course places a strong emphasis on translation of theory to practice. The rapid developments in audiology, and our understanding of language, communication and educational practice, make this an exciting area of study. The course has DfE/TDA approval meeting, the requirements of the mandatory qualification.

For students who already hold the PG Diploma in Deaf Education, an additional module is available to allow students to gain an MSc, including Research Methods and a Dissertation.
