Through your studies, you will:

  • acquire knowledge of foundational concepts and traditions in education
  • develop an understanding of recent issues and debates across policy and practice
  • apply critical perspectives on substantive and contemporary issues and ideas
  • demonstrate analytical skills in evaluating, synthesizing and communicating academic concepts
  • build confidence in academic practice at an advanced level.
