Course content

The MA Education (Literacy) gives students a unique opportunity to explore how literacy operates in a diverse and changing world. Recognising that literacy is a social practice in a multilingual and multimodal world, this MA considers how literacy has been, and continues to be understood and politicised. Our modules focus on the various ways in which literacy is perceived, valued, used and appraised, across a range of life domains and cultural contexts. As a result, this MA explores how literacy links with constructions of power, agency and gender and considers the implications of this for all. Students who take this MA learn with world-leading experts in the field of literacy and leave with key skills that can be used in a range of workplace contexts or to take on to further study at doctoral level.
