About

The Masters in Special Educational Needs (MSEN) at Dublin City University is a blended programme open to qualified experienced teachers working in primary and post-primary schools, in special schools or classes or in other recognised educational centres.

Overview

The aim of the MSEN programme is to develop teachers' knowledge and skills in analysing, critiquing and applying research literature in the area of special and inclusive education and in carrying out research relevant to children and young people with learning difficulties or special educational needs.

Applicants must have  successfully completed  a recognised postgraduate diploma programme of continuing professional development for teachers involved in learning support, inclusive or special education or the DCU accredited Professional Diploma in Special and Inclusive Education. Selection criteria may apply to all candidates.

A qualification of Masters in Special Educational Needs will be awarded to successful course participants by Dublin City University.

Careers

The Masters in  Special Educational Needs is designed to meet the professional and personal needs of teachers seeking to acquire deep expertise in the area of inclusive and special education. The programme offers participants the opportunity to develop deep understanding of and critique theories and practices relating to inclusive and special education in light of current research and professional experience. Graduates will develop the skills and knowledge to contribute to and lead  the development of a culture of critical analysis, research, and innovative practice in inclusive and special education and so have a formative impact on development within schools, workplaces and the broader education community.

The programme will be of interest to teachers who wish to take on a leadership role in relation to inclusive pedagogy within their schools and school areas. Many graduates of the MSEN have also moved into leadership and professional development roles  within other relevant educational contexts.
