The course consists of 120 credits per year. Most modules are 20 credits, meaning you’ll study six modules each year. Some longer modules, such as a dissertation, are worth more (e.g. 40 credits). In these cases, you’ll study fewer modules - but the number of credits will always add up to 120.
Core and compulsory modules are fundamental to achieving the learning outcomes for your course and must be studied.
Engaging with Voices in Inclusive Settings
This module focuses on finding ways of listening and responding to marginalised voices of children and young people. It seeks to redress the balance between the predominant voices of "experts" and those experiencing marginalisation by developing an understanding of a variety of methodological participative tools, which can be used to bring about this shift in thinking.
Education, Inequality and Social Justice
Study the role of education in overcoming inequality and promoting social justice – and how a holistic approach to educational equality can help make schools truly egalitarian institutions.
Education for Personal, Social and Emotional Wellbeing
By taking this module, you will critically consider the complex issues relating to and affecting children's and young people's wellbeing, and the extent to which education and learning communities have the potential to enhance and nurture pupil welfare.
Informal and Non Formal Education and Learning
Although often unacknowledged, informal or non-formal learning is happening all around us through voluntary and community organisations, in youth and community work, through on-line communities and in the workplace. In this module, you will evaluate a site of informal learning chosen by you and gain insight into the crucial, yet often hidden, role informal and non-formal learning plays in society.
You will make an original contribution to research by designing, carrying out and writing up your own project on a topic you choose, supported by your dissertation supervisor.
