This programme provides opportunities to engage with significant questions, issues and debates within education studies. Students advance their analytical skills, deepen their understanding of educational theory and methodology and develop their capacity to reflect critically on professional practice.

Drawing upon differing disciplines and schools of thought, including sociology, law, philosophy, political theory and feminism, the programme invites students to analyse educational experiences, values and practices in ways which are creative, rigorous and rewarding.

Students examine the politics of educational policy and practice in relation to questions of social justice, identity, gender, race and the teaching of diverse groups of students. The aim is to engage students with a diverse range of intellectual resources so they might situate themselves in ongoing dialogues about education.
