The Department of Education offers a 1 year full-time (12 month) MA in education programme.
The main focus of the MA in Education (MAE) is its emphasis on educational research and the grounding it provides students for conducting their own small-scale research projects in a wide range of educational settings. Such studies can focus on current developments in education and issues of immediate concern to students themselves. As such, as well as providing a coherent and satisfying educational experience in its own right, the MAE can serve as an excellent introduction to work at PhD level.
