EDUCATION (MA)

The MA Education programme is designed for practising teachers, educators and others with a personal or professional interest in the field of education. The programme aims to provide opportunities for engagement with the key theories, concepts and ideas in education. The structure of the programme is flexible enough to meet the needs of those seeking to develop a more academic understanding of the field and those aspiring to develop their practice through critical reflection. The programme will help practitioners to adopt best practise, promote innovation and manage change.

The modules available allow teachers, educators and others to critically analyse and respond to educational and social issues within the context of theory, research and practice. The programme is designed to meet both the academic and professional needs of those teaching, coaching, managing and leading in all sectors of education.

By studying at Liverpool Hope University, you will be joining an academic community with a strong record in educational research. You will study in a supportive learning environment and be encouraged to develop your own research profile.

The delivery pattern on the Master's programme is flexible to suit the needs of our students. Normally our classes run in the evenings typically Mondays to Thursdays. The number of evenings you attend will depend on whether you choose to do the course full time or part-time.
