Course content

In the MA Education (Citizenship), students explore educational, political and philosophical debates that have influenced the curriculum and the learning and teaching of citizenship in schools, colleges and related settings. Students are encouraged to critically reflect on principles, practices and issues that shape and relate to policy and professional practice in citizenship education and to develop theorized and evidence-informed perspectives on policy and practice.

This MA Education is located in the Department of Curriculum, Pedagogy and Assessment, a world-leading centre for subject-specialist education. By studying the citizenship education route, you will have the opportunity to reflect on practice in citizenship education and, through assignments focused on contemporary subject-specific teaching and learning, you will have opportunities to develop and evaluate interventions to enhance the quality of the teaching and learning of citizenship in educational settings and related contexts.

You will be encouraged to read widely in specialist literature and be introduced to world-leading theory and research in citizenship education and in education studies more broadly. You will be encouraged to innovate and test ideas and to contribute to ongoing discussions about improving citizenship education.

The MA Education (Citizenship) offers students the opportunity to study face-to-face, to combine online study with face-to-face sessions, or to pursue their studies entirely by online learning. Online learning and blended learning provide access to our courses for students studying at a distance
