An MSc – also known as a Master of Science – is a postgraduate degree that’s most commonly awarded to students who’ve honed their skills in a scientific or technical field of study but which can occasionally be obtained by a student of social sciences as well. These programs offer a more thorough understanding of a field overall.
What is an MSc in Pedagogy? Pedagogy is a science that revolves around how children learn and develop in an educational setting. Throughout their advanced education, students may complete courses designed to help them observe other students, learning environments and educational policies with a critical eye. Students may be expected to complete child and family studies courses, along with educational science classes in order to learn more about what makes a classroom or curriculum effective or ineffective as the case may be.
While taking on these subjects, participants in the MSc program should learn a number of skills, including critical thinking, collaborating in groups, and putting plans into action. These skills are highly valuable in students’ private lives as well, helping them to implement change and communicate with others effectively.
Tuition for the required courses changes depending on which school and country a student elects to attend. Because these degrees often take upward of a year to obtain, students should carefully research prices in order to financially plan for their advanced education.
Because education is a global concern, graduates with an MSc in Pedagogy may be able to find a wide array of employment opportunities after they’ve completed their necessary courses. Educational researcher, educational policy maker, curriculum advisor, curriculum developer, educational coordinator in schools and program manager are some of the common job titles students may encounter during their post-graduation job hunt. These are jobs that allow graduates to have a direct impact on their country’s educational policies.
While some students may prefer local courses, there may also be international and online options for those who prefer something just a bit different. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.

Are you interested in how social contexts affect the development of children, adolescents and young adults? Do you want to make a difference in the well-being of young people? The Master’s track Youth at Risk prepares you to become a scientist-practitioner in the field of preventive youth care, parenting and education, to enhance the development of youth at risk.
Key topics In this Master’s track
individual susceptibility to risk (genes, neurobiology, personality and cognitive ability)
oppositional, defiant, and antisocial or delinquent behaviour in youths
psychosocial problems, (social) anxiety and depressive moods
child abuse, and foster and adoption family constellations
learning disabilities, truancy, dropout, and school and teacher support factors
intervention (induced) effects, effective elements, and implementation practices
A Master about social contexts and youth development

SCI-Arc’s Master of Science in Design Theory and Pedagogy one-year program prepares students for a new kind of hybrid career that has emerged in architecture: the architect-theorist-educator. (This program is pending WSCUC approval.)
The world is changing, and the formerly strict separation between architectural practice and academia is fading thanks to new research models at universities and new knowledge-based forms of practice. Yet despite the importance of this new role, academia has yet to produce a program to train talented young architects to occupy it; at traditional universities, there are separate programs to educate practitioners versus scholars.
The M.S. in Design Theory and Pedagogy program occupies a space in between these two known models and targets specifically a hybrid career in academia. Utilizing SCI-Arc itself as a hands-on teaching laboratory, the long-term project of the program is to develop new design pedagogies and a new apparatus for the production of design theory.
The program requires attendance in the fall, spring, and summer terms....
Our aim is to increase the quality of upbringing, care and education by improving policies and interventions for young people and their social and learning contexts.
Do you want to...
Explore how interventions can improve the well-being of young people, their families, schools, and communities?
Learn how to successfully implement interventions in child and youth care and education?
Discuss the role of scientific research in improving interventions and youth policy?
Then this Master's program might be just ideal for you! Completing this program equips you with
State-of-the-art knowledge of youth research, practices, and policy, how they are linked and how can improve each other;
The skills to design, carry out and evaluate youth policy and interventions using interdisciplinary and international insights;
A reflexive, critical attitude towards youth policies, practices and innovations.

In education, there are a number of different interests to be considered: the interests of the children, their parents, the groups to which they belong (e.g. religious or ethnic minorities), and the interests of society.
These interests are often difficult to define and they can often be at odds with each other. How do we establish what is the best practice or policy? How do we assess and attune conflicting interests or claims? How do we decide in the case of strong differences of opinion and perception?
Educational professionals need to have the competences to analyze and discuss moral, legal and policy-related issues. Some of them need to be extra-proficient in this area in order to be able to advise other professionals, managers, policy makers, politicians, and governments. The Ethics of Education Master's course provides the right learning environment to enable you to develop this extra expertise. You will acquire the relevant competencies and learn to apply these in the professional contexts of research, policy making, and consultancy....
Students in this programme can focus on pedagogical sciences in one of two areas: diversities in youth care, or gifted education.
One Programme, Two Specialisations If you are interested in pedagogical sciences, Radboud University offers a comprehensive, rigorous Master's programme that will prepare you for a wide variety of positions in the current job market. Whether you want to become a clinical supervisor, policy advisor, teacher trainer, developer, policy officer, researcher, trainer, tutor, or coach, the Master's in Pedagogical Science can help you gain the knowledge and experience needed to do so. Depending on your interests, you can choose to specialise in one of two areas: Diversities in Youth Care, or Gifted Education. Read on for more information about these specialisations!
Specialisation 1: Diversities in Youth Care In this Master's programme, you will learn how diversities such as ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual preference or socio-economic class may influence the kinds of problems children and young people experience. You will learn how they express themselves regarding these issues, and in which ways you need to take these diversities into account as a professional pedagogue. In this programme, you can focus on policy, research and/or counselling. Moreover, you can choose a specific target group or theme (e.g. ethnic minorities, sex, sexuality) and follow courses like ‘Gender and Diversities in Organisations', 'Poverty, Wellbeing and Social Justice', 'Migratie en Interreligieuze Studies', 'Feminist Classics', and ‘Community Outreach Project'. You are encouraged to match both the practical training and the writing of your master thesis on the subject of your interest. We will facilitate your practical training abroad in the spring semester...
