About

This Education programme offered by the Goldsmiths, University of London seeks to enhance understanding and critical awareness of educational theory and practice by focusing upon issues of culture, language and identity and is taught by internationally renowned experts.

The programme aims to develop an inclusive and inter-cultural approach to teaching and learning across a wide range of educational styles, by interrogating current educational policies, curriculum frameworks, teaching practices and theoretical perspectives.

Its modular structure allows for specialisation in the areas of equity and social justice, curriculum policy and practice, language and culture in education, and the arts in education.

The programme will enable you to develop:

1. enhanced understanding and critical awareness of educational theory and practice

2. critical reflection skills

3. research skills

Programme Structure

You will develop new perspectives on education through a process of reasoned critical reflection, and you will be encouraged to apply your developing understanding of educational practices and issues in your own institution and elsewhere.

You have to complete 180 CAT points, made up from the compulsory core module: Culture, Language and Identity in Education (30 CAT points), plus Option modules (30 CAT points each) and the Dissertation (60 CAT points).

All sessions run in the evenings to accommodate professional teachers and educators with substantial existing commitments and workloads. You may be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate if you exit after completing two modules (one third of the programme) or a Postgraduate Diploma if you complete four modules (two thirds of the programme).

Practitioners who already have existing M-level credits from any institution may transfer these on to the MA.
