What is a Master in Primary Education?

part of Education & Training

Primary Education teaches you how to create engaging lessons and practical activities that help children develop essential writing, reading, arithmetic, and social skills. You will explore different learning needs, understand how courses are designed, and discover how to give feedback to children and their parents.

During a Bachelor’s or Master’s degree in Primary Education, you can expect to take classes on youth development, curriculum and methodologies, subject studies, engaging teaching, feedback and assessment, etc.

As a future primary school teacher, you will work with children aged 5 to 13, depending on the national education system’s structure. Your work will have a significant impact on children’s life, as their first school experiences greatly influence their development.

In addition to fundamental knowledge about Education and Psychology, successful primary school teachers also master communication, presentation, creativity, patience, and evaluation skills.

Primary Education graduates often work in public and private elementary schools, after-schools, local councils, or NGOs.

You should know that Primary Education is also referred to as Elementary Education or Primary Teaching.
