MA Education (Innovation in Learning and Teaching)

The MA Education award at the University of South Wales offers students the maximum flexibility in terms of module choice. Lecturers will work with you to put together a course specifically tailored to meet your individual professional needs. During your studies, if you decide to focus on one of the areas you have studied at module level, there is the possibility for you to transfer onto one of the specialist awards available.

The MA Education course consists of a number of specialist pathways and is for you if you are from any of a range of professional backgrounds including teachers, lecturers and managers in the further education sector, speech and language therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, midwives and members of the armed forces and police service. If you are a non-graduate then you may qualify for the pathways with relevant experience.

On your chosen pathway, you will have the opportunity to engage critically with the theories and practices of education with a view to applying your learning to your own practice. The MA Education is well established and has been running since 1995 and is regularly updated in order to reflect the changing needs of participants and potential participants.

What you will study

On all pathways within the MA Education programme, you must take the core module Research Methodology. This module will equip you to carry out a small scale education enquiry ethically and effectively.

You are then free to choose three other modules from the wide selection available within the MA Education programme.
