Course content

This MA Education part-time modular course aims to support participants in developing as critically reflective practitioners with a broader and deeper understanding of their context, phase or subject. Students are supported in analysing and carrying out small-scale enquiries, underpinned by and connecting theory with practice. The MA Education course includes portfolio and independent modules which do not require regular attendance at UWE, enabling flexible and distance study, as well as taught modules. The later stages of the course require attendance at one compulsory taught module, Researching Education, in advance of the Dissertation module.

Why study the MA Education?

  • We aim to produce critically reflective practitioners with a deeper understanding of their subject who link theory to practice on the basis of evidence based research.
  • You will have access to research active staff with wide ranging experience and specialisms in Education.
  • The MA Education is a flexible programme - you can choose from taught modules or work-based action enquiries, independent study or portfolios of professional development.
  • You can use credits for modules studied here at UWE (eg. M Level in the PGCE), at other universities and for your first teaching degree plus QTS.
  • It is possible to undertake single modules and build credits without committing to full MA.

We hold a number of University-wide open evenings as well as a number of subject specific events throughout the year for anyone considering postgraduate and professional study. Visit http://www1.uwe.ac.uk/whatson/opendays/postgraduateopendays.aspx
