About

The English Education MA programme offered at the University College London (UCL) offers participants a stimulating combination of both academic and professional development, including guidance on conducting small-scale research. 

Overview

It is particularly helpful in enhancing practising English/literacy teachers' promotional prospects and 'leadership capital', and is relevant to practitioners from across all phases of education.

Updated annually, a carefully balanced English Education MA programme offered at the University College London (UCL) of core and optional modules explores a wide range of contemporary topics relating to English as a curriculum subject; interactive seminars are designed to draw on participants' own experiences and increase awareness of the richness and scope of English as a field of study (including media and drama).

Careers

Graduates of this programme are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as teachers of English (in the UK and internationally), while others have jobs as heads of English departments in UK schools. Graduates can also be found working as education advisers with cultural organisations.
