Course Summary

In the MA Education (Citizenship), students explore educational, political and philosophical debates that have influenced the curriculum and the learning and teaching of citizenship in schools, colleges and related settings. Students are encouraged to critically reflect on principles, practices and issues that shape and relate to policy and professional practice in citizenship education and to develop theorized and evidence-informed perspectives on policy and practice. Students explore the key concepts involved in understanding citizenship education. They develop an understanding of contemporary issues and key research findings in citizenship education and related areas, and are supported to apply this knowledge in practice in educational settings and related contexts.

By studying the citizenship education route, you will have the opportunity to reflect on practice in citizenship education and, through assignments focused on contemporary subject-specific teaching and learning, you will have opportunities to develop and evaluate interventions to enhance the quality of the teaching and learning of citizenship in educational settings and related contexts. You will be encouraged to read widely in specialist literature and be introduced to world-leading theory and research in citizenship education and in education studies more broadly. You will be encouraged to innovate and test ideas and to contribute to ongoing discussions about improving citizenship education. Graduates of this programme are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as teachers, senior leaders in schools in the UK and internationally, while others work in a range of other educational settings and for governments in curriculum design and related areas. Students will take this course in flexible study mode also.
