Overview

The MA SEN-ALN (Autism) course at University of South Wales will be of interest to professionals working in the field of education, health, social care and the third sector who have contact with children or adults on the autism spectrum.

The MA SEN/ALN (Autism) is designed for those who wish to become an advanced practitioner in autism by acquiring a relevant qualification.

It is also of relevance to newly qualified practitioners who are interested in gaining a specialism in autism, and to those coming from a personal perspective on autism who would like to deepen their knowledge and find out more about current research and relevant theoretical ideas.

Careers

Most students who study the part-time autism course already work in this specific field. The full-time students quickly find work locally within education or the care sector, which offers them opportunities to apply theory to practice.

A Masters degree in Autism is a major boost to a career. Whatever your profession, experience has shown us that success on the course leads to enhanced employment prospects. Parents of children diagnosed with an ASD feel empowered both from their success and the increased insight gained.
