The Education, Policy & Society MA course draws on sociology, political science, economics and history to address the challenges of education policy and provision. Students will gain a deep understanding of educational policy and processes in relation to issues of race, social class, gender and changes such as globalization and new managerialism. The 30 credit taught modules are normally assessed by a 6,000 word assignment. However, assessment methods may vary, depending on the optional modules students select, and for the required module they will be asked to complete a 5,000 word essay and 1,000 word blog or policy briefing. The 60-credit dissertation is assessed by an extended piece of writing of 16,000 words. Students are permitted to take up to 40 of their optional credits from outside of the course, at the discretion of the Programme Director. The contact time and assessment methods for those modules may vary.
