Summary

The MA Special and Inclusive Education will develop knowledge of special and inclusive education. Students will be introduced to world-leading theory and research and consider how it links to policy and practice. The MA will appeal to those looking to develop their professional practice or progress to further study about disability, inclusive education, and/or educational policy. The MA also has two specialist routes in Autism and Specific Learning Difficulties.

Through a variety of taught sessions, independent activities and group/individual assessments, students on the programme will graduate with a broad range of knowledge, interpersonal contacts, and skills preparing them to continue work in the field of inclusive education. Anyone interested in either of the two specialist routes should see our Special and Inclusive Education (Autism) MA or Special and Inclusive Education (Specific Learning Difficulties) MA pages.
