Join Warwick's Career Development and Coaching MA and train in supporting the career development of others. Warwick's Centre for Lifelong Learning will provide you with a thorough grounding in the skills and knowledge required for your future career.
This MA provides a thorough grounding in the skills and knowledge required to support the career development of others in a range of contexts. We will enable you to make a distinctive contribution to the field of career development and coaching studies through taught modules and independent research. The MA is approved by the Career Development Institute (CDI) as meeting the qualification requirement for the UK Register of Career Development Professionals.
The core and optional modules are taught through a blend of workshops and virtual learning. In relation to the Research Project and Dissertation, you will attend a workshop and be allocated a dissertation supervisor. The workshop and supervision are provided to assist you with undertaking an initial literature review, constructing research questions and designing a methodology. There is considerable experience available within the course team and most topics connected with career development and coaching can be pursued.
Modules are assessed through a combination of assignments (5,000 word projects) and case studies. Dissertation A (60 credits) consists of a 15,000 word dissertation (100%). Dissertation B (100 credits) consists of a more in-depth 25,000 word dissertation (100%). Typically, the dissertation is focused on a topic of your choice and includes an initial literature review, research questions, methodology and findings.
Our graduates occupy a range of relevant career development roles in the private and public sectors. Former students have gone on to publish and?disseminate?their work in a range of academic and professional contexts. PhD opportunities are available at Warwick within the Centre for Lifelong Learning and the Warwick Institute for Employment Research.
