Manchester Metropolitan University
Education Studies is concerned with understanding how people develop and learn throughout their lives, the nature of knowledge, and critical engagement with ways of knowing and understanding. Our MA Education Studies offers intellectually rigorous analysis of educational processes, systems and approaches, and their cultural, societal, political, historical and economic contexts. Postgraduates are able to participate in, and contest, changing discourses exemplified by reference to debate about values, personal and social engagement and how these relate to communities and societies. Education Studies students have opportunities to develop their critical capabilities through the selection, analysis and synthesis of relevant perspectives, and to be able to justify different positions on educational matters. This course provides the knowledge, understanding and critical analysis to inform current and future professionals in education, for different areas and contexts. The full time MA Education Studies is normally timetabled for teaching on two days a week (currently Tuesdays and Thursdays), with additional independent, guided study requirements. As well as (30 credit) taught units of study, the course also provides opportunities to gain practice experience in UK educational contexts, and every student undertakes a (60 credit) dissertation, allowing in-depth and extended study in an area of interest and relevance. For information on fees for this course please see our online prospectus information.
