The MA in Education provides a structured pathway for professional development and scholarship within the field of education. The distinctiveness of the programme is its focus on theoretical content and transformation of educational practice using methods of enquiry- based learning that is embedded in practice. Education interpreted in a broad sense includes all aspects of pedagogical approaches to learning, development, and participation of children, young people, and adults in their social/cultural worlds. Challenging the nature and meaning of ‘education’ and current practice is central to the MA in Education Studies, we draw on social, cultural, and educational theory to critically engage with debates and dilemmas which challenge the education sector. This deep theorising is used in conjunction with knowledge generated through other practice-related enquiry methods like practice-based research or case study, to help frame innovative solutions to educational practice.
