Course Summary

Programme overview

Our education master's degrees give you the opportunity to design a tailored programme of study that suits your cultural and learning needs. You will be able to specialise and receive awards in one of the following disciplinary areas:

Teaching and Learning
Leadership and Policy
Policy and International Development
Learning, Technology and Society
Mathematics Education
Neuroscience and Education
Inclusive Education

These specialisms will be shown on your award, for example MSc Education (Leadership and Policy).

Alternatively, you can design your own pathway by opting not to specialise. Core units can be taken from across the different specialisms and from our bank of optional units to build a tailored programme of study, resulting in an award of MSc Education.

Modules

The dissertation unit will enable students to bring together a range of approaches and frameworks introduced during taught units, particularly the research methods strands. It will provide students with experience of using research and theoretical literature to inform research design; designing and conducting a small scale research project; and communicating research in a coherent and cogent manner. Further, the students will be required to draw on previous research methods units in the design, implementation, data collection and analysis of their research. This unit will support students to become critical readers of research literature, to use classroom innovations appropriately within the research process and to become independent generators of research ideas and practice within educational settings. This unit may also function as an important first step in supporting those students who wish to go on to further PhD study by providing the opportunity to test and evaluate their research practices and theoretical approaches.
