Overview

We are delighted to introduce our new ‘Interdisciplinary Masters’, which is a bespoke programme offering each student a choice of awards, allowing them to tailor the provision to their own research interests.

The curriculum is constructed from 60-credit ‘Blocks’ of provision, from which students will choose two of the combinations permitted. Each 60-credit Block comprises of either two 30-credit or four 15-credit modules. 

After completion of the taught phase, students will then embark on the research phase, whereby they will study a Research Methods module and then complete a Dissertation that synthesises the two Blocks that they have studied.

Students can combine two of the following:

  • Developmental Psychology
  • Disability Studies
  • Early Childhood
  • Education (either Education Theory or Education in Action)
  • Education Leadership and Management
  • Philosophy of Education
  • Religious Education
  • Special Educational Needs

Curriculum

Below is a list of the possible subject combinations you can study.

*There are a number of barred block combinations due to shared modules and some barred block combinations for full time students.

Applications from students who do not hold a 1st or 2:1 Honours Degree (or equivalent) will be asked to demonstrate potential to achieve a Masters award via a sample of academic writing and interview before an offer is made.

Please note that a satisfactory Enhanced Disclosure from the Disclosure and Barring Service (formerly the Criminal Records Bureau – CRB) is required for students where they are required to visit settings other than their own workplace and involves access to children.

For students whose first language is not English there is a language requirement of IELTS 6.5 overall (reading 6, writing 6), TOEFL ibt 87, or other equivalent recognised English language qualification. For additional information including entry requirements from your country, fees and scholarships go to the International section of the website.

 

Teaching & Research

Research in the Faculty of Education is organised around two centres and research fora / groups:

Students taking a Masters in the Education Faculty may find their work aligns with any or several of these groups, as the award is designed to allow individuals to study areas of education and teaching and learning in a wide variety of settings and contexts.

Employability

You will be able to structure your award to enhance your personal interests, career specific opportunities and potential for promotion to senior management and leadership. It will enable you to evaluate adult's and children's learning through research and postgraduate study. For teachers, this course will enhance opportunities to move beyond the threshold and become an 'excellent teacher'.

Students completing the MA will also be well placed to go on to a doctorate (EdD or PhD) at Liverpool Hope.
