The Masters in Education is a unique modular programme of study designed to support both individual and organisational development. While each subject area has its own unique focus, all are concerned with investigating contemporary educational issues in the light of economic and social contexts, appropriate literature and the shared experience of course members. The MA in Education programme is designed for participants who wish to deepen and refine their capacity to reflect critically upon their thinking and practice. A selection of modules is offered so that participants can select a programme that is most appropriate to the education context in which they work. The programme modules are therefore strongly practise-focused. It is a flexible programme that can be tailored to individual needs, within the framework of available modules and University?s regulations for postgraduate study. Course Content Enhancing your capacity for systematic inquiry is fundamental to the MA in Education. There is therefore one core module which enables you to develop the confidence and competence to embed inquiry in your everyday practice as an educator. This 30 credit module is Planning Practice Based Inquiry and it is compulsory for all course members. The course comprises four 30 credit modules and a dissertation. As well as general teaching modules, students are able to study a range of specialist themes including: ? Educational Leadership and Management ? Higher Education ? Human Relations ? Learning, Technology and Education ? Local and Regional History ? Special Needs Please note that all module details are subject to change. The School of Education welcomes approaches from educational organisations looking for a bespoke programme for their own staff, perhaps in collaboration with other local organisations (e.g. feeder schools, special schools, PRU, FE colleges, integrated services) to create or develop a local network of educators learning together. Assessment Each 30 credit module is assessed by a written assignment of 5,000-6,000 words or equivalent. The dissertation is an original piece of work and should be 12,000 ? 15,000 words (or their equivalent) in one of the selected modules or an approved topic. Course Structure The MA in Education can be completed over 1 year of full-time study or part-time over 2 to 4 years.
