Course content

The MA Education Studies offers a choice of routes for practising professionals and managers in educational settings. Masters level study is viewed by many as being essential for career progression and supports professional development in education and related fields. This course provides the opportunity to develop knowledge and understanding of the current landscape in education and engage with wider theories and issues. Students will develop critical thinking and hone higher level skills.
