A new MA in Education, with a strong international focus, is designed to unlock a spectrum of careers. It is now available through the University of London International Programmes, which has been providing distance and flexible learning across the world since 1858.
Although primarily designed to meet the needs of education professionals, it also provides a sound foundation for leadership roles, both within the education sector and other related areas.
Available from October 2012, the MA in Education programme tackles key questions such as “What is Education?”, exploring the nature of education, its purpose and how it is experienced by both teachers and learners. Other areas of personal and professional interest can also be explored through modules such as The Second Language Learning Experience; Guiding Effective Learning and Teaching; Planning for Education and Development; and Contemporary Issues and Debates in Primary Education, thus making this study programme relevant to a worldwide audience.
The programme is designed with our students worldwide in mind, including the UK, says Dr Clare Brooks, the MA in Education Programme Director, University of London International Programmes: “All modules within the MA have an international dimension and throughout the course of the programme, students will be encouraged to consider how their ideas relate to their individual context and experience. No doubt this will vary immensely for students from region to region, which will help foster a personal learning experience amongst our diverse student community”.
“We believe that this MA in Education will also appeal to education professionals, such as teachers and administrators, who may seek to advance their careers to a senior leadership role. In doing so, they will be able to make a significant contribution towards positively shaping how we deliver education across the world in meeting the needs of our different communities.”
Professor Jonathan Kydd, Dean, University of London International Programmes, added: “The MA in Education is a very welcome addition to our suite of 100+ programmes. It is an ideal programme for working professionals in that it provides them with flexibility over when, where and how they complete their chosen course. Many of our students move across the globe and continue with their study programme, no matter where in the world they may be. Many of them undertake these programmes alongside work and family commitments to keep pace with changing trends in education or simply to gain a qualification.”
This MA in Education is uniquely flexible, whether students wish to engage in the degree’s wealth of modules at the Institute of Education or study solely online, the option is theirs.
Online applications are now being accepted for this Masters degree. Further information is available on the International Programmes website.
