Gain the expertise you need to standout in today’s marketplace.

Designed with professionals in mind, the Roehampton Education MA provides a highly flexible programme of study aimed at students and professionals seeking to deepen their knowledge of education and its role in society.

By focusing on graduating with a professional skillset, you’ll become a confident, agile, independent thinker, with the ability to adapt rapidly to change. This incorporates;

• Drawing on the wider professional experiences that students may have, of working in contexts where educational approaches are important

• Covering critical social and educational theories and perspectives, as well as policy and practices relevant to global and local educational contexts

• Achieving critical awareness and understanding of education in its broadest sense as a process of human learning and development.

 

You will be able to select a further four modules from a range of options, including those from related MA programmes in Early Childhood Studies, SEN Disability & Inclusive Education and Education Leadership and Management. This gives you the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding in an area of education that interests you, or is relevant to your chosen career.

How you'll learn

Choose an MA that works for you.

The course is delivered through stimulating, interactive workshops, lectures, and seminars at Roehampton. You will study a range of theoretical perspectives, critically looking at the values and assumptions underpinning these views.

You’ll be able to shape your studies around your own interests and aspirations, with optional modules from a range of related MA programmes:

• Early Childhood Studies

• SEN Disability & Inclusive Education

• Education Leadership and Management

This gives you the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding in an area of education that interests you or is relevant to your chosen career.

You will benefit greatly from engaging with the insights, experiences and perspectives of your peers who may come from a diverse range of contexts, backgrounds, and experiences. These insights combined with your own experiences and the theory gained from the modules will allow you to deepen your understanding of working with children and young people and of education in its broadest sense.

The Roehampton School of Education is a progressive and inclusive community, putting you at the centre of your learning journey. Lecturers leading modules on this programme have specialist qualifications, teaching or leadership experience in the field of education, with relevant research and scholarly backgrounds, which will help shape the content of the programme.
