Course content

The MA in Education: Learning and Teaching (MAE:LT) offers practising teachers a wealth of opportunities to learn from expert practitioners in a supportive but academically rigorous environment. You will engage with recent academic research and develop the critical, analytical and reflective skills essential to any teacher, whilst exploring contemporary government policy, curriculum and classroom-based issues. Our tutors are all established scholars and/or practitioners in their fields, and offer their expertise at whole group and individual level, with tutorial support built into every module.

On this degree you will choose an elective module in Year 1 and a further elective module in Year 2. In Year 3, you will take the Professional Enquiry which is a core module taken by all students to complete the MA.
