Welcome to MA Education

The MA Education offers to practice and aspiring educators opportunities to learn, apply and produce critical knowledge in the interdisciplinary field of Education, and to use this to inform and transform future educational practice, theory, policy, and institutions.

The program provides a coherent and flexible postgraduate degree that furthers existing critical understanding of the practice and allows aspiring educators to deepen their knowledge of education. On completion, students will have gained both a broader and deeper understanding of the academic study of education and its relevance to their own experience. Furthermore, they will have gained the knowledge, skills, and confidence to undertake further critical, reflexive, and sensitive research in the field of education and more broadly in the social sciences.

The program is designed around three core modules and two optional modules. The core modules aim to support students in identifying their specific research questions through a critical review of the literature; develop the requisite knowledge, understanding, and practical skills in appropriate research methods; and produce a compelling piece of advanced research. Optional modules allow students to deepen their existing subject knowledge and/or broaden their understanding of the study of education.

How You Study

All students are expected to attend the scheduled teaching in the program. This takes place on a weekly basis for each module and is attended in person/face-to-face. Upon request, these seminars are also available as webinars using the Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and learning management system (Blackboard). Blackboard provides students with access to a range of structured resources, including many digitized texts and key readings. It is also used more interactively, as a means of extending the dialogues that are seen as crucial to students' learning.

How You Are Assessed

Assessment is through written assignments, portfolios, and presentations. Students also receive feedback on their work from teaching staff and their tutor, as well as receive grades to mark their progress through the curricula. In addition, students should expect to participate in formative peer reviews of each other's ideas and work throughout the program via active group discussion and a variety of presentation methods (e.g. annual student presentations/conference and poster sessions).

Assessment Feedback

The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to students promptly – usually within 15 working days of the submission date.
