Curriculum

Theory and Methodology of Educational Research

The aims of this study block are to understand a range of philosophical and methodological stances underpinning educational research, to explain how a methodological perspective and the theorisation of the object of study influences the design of an educational research project, and to critique and interrogate the design of a particular piece of educational research.

Issues and Perspectives in Education

The aims of this study block are to know and understand a range of issues and debates in the contemporary field of education, to understand the policy context of education, to understand and account for differences in perspective on educational questions, and to offer a reasoned contribution to a contemporary educational debate.

Comparative and International Education

Comparative and International Education

Disciplines in Education

The aims of this study block are to understand the major disciplines underpinning the study of education, with a particular focus on the philosophy, history, sociology and psychology of education, and to understand education as a field of study, to understand the complexities of studying educational practice and to critically assess the significance of different disciplinary perspectives for educational research and practice.

Dissertation

The dissertation is the most substantial single piece of work undertaken during the MA Education degree course. It builds upon knowledge, understanding and skills that students develop during the taught part of the module. To be eligible for the award of MA Education (with specialism, as appropriate), the topic, title and work completed for the dissertation must clearly address the chosen specialism.
