Course content

The Master’s Degree by Research allows you to examine one area of education in depth and is focused on producing a 40,000-word dissertation. This is an alternative route to gaining a Master’s level qualification, which appeals to students with a clear focus for their study.

Education Studies is proud of the diversity and excellence of research undertaken in the centre. We have a wide range of disciplinary and methodological expertise in education research both qualitative and quantitative. We are committed to interdisciplinarity in education studies and welcome research students who wish to pursue multidisciplinary research by supporting joint supervision with other Warwick departments.

Our main research themes are childhood, cultural and creative learning, school leadership and improvement, religions and education research, life sciences education, special needs education and disability research and international development and education.
