An MA, or Master of Arts, degree is a graduate degree usually within the domains of the humanities or social sciences. This level of degree is necessary to begin work towards earning a doctoral degree.
What is an MA in Pedagogy? This degree helps current and future educators develop their teaching practices. It also teaches the learning theories behind the practices implemented. In some countries, the degree is more related to social work than teaching. Many master’s degrees in this field are based on one area of specialization, such as Gifted Education, Teacher Education, Mathematics, or Ethics. The focus of these degrees is sometimes concentrated on one area of the educational spectrum. Other times, it is a general overview of pedagogy as a subject.
Students in this degree track learn how to teach academic subjects effectively, as well as how to guide their own students in social skills and cultural norms. Candidates for the MA in Pedagogy can come away with the ability to implement teaching strategies and assess as well as reassess their practice when teaching or guiding anyone, not just students.
The cost of completing an MA in Pedagogy differs from school to school, as well as from country to country. The program takes most full-time students about two years to complete.
Graduates of these programs often find they can ply their trade in elementary or secondary schools as teachers. This degree does not limit graduates to teaching only, however. A master’s degree in pedagogy can help graduates find employment in curriculum development for a multitude of companies. Some graduates work in education policymaking. In addition, this degree can help graduates work in any teaching capacity, whether it be in a school, a prison, an orphanage or a corporation.
