MA Education Studies

MA Education Studies provides opportunities for students to enhance their understanding of issues relating to a diverse range of educational policy and practice. It enhances analytical and research skills and provides sociological and philosophical insights into the study of education.

This programme provides opportunities to engage with significant questions, issues and debates within education studies. Students advance their analytical skills, deepen their
understanding of educational theory and methodology, and develop their capacity to reflect critically on professional practice.

Drawing upon differing disciplines and schools of thought, including sociology, law, philosophy, political theory and feminism, the programme invites students to analyse educational experiences, values and practices in ways that are creative, rigorous and rewarding. Students examine the politics of educational policy and practice in relation to questions of social justice, identity, gender, race and the teaching of diverse groups of students. The aim is to engage students with a diverse range of intellectual resources so they might situate themselves in ongoing dialogues about education that are themselves educative.
