Our MA Education explores the subject of education in its fullest sense, from its pivotal role in society to the theories, policies, and practices which influence, change, and enhance it.

Whether your interests lie in the practical application of education, or the abstract theory of the mechanisms, purpose and rationale for education, you’ll have the opportunity to explore, critique and research education, enabling you to develop expertise in your field.

You can study our MA Education full-time, part-time on campus, or part-time in the workplace. If you’d like to focus your study on a specific area of education, we also offer nine specialist pathways.
