What will I learn?

The MA has genuinely changed both the direction of my career and my confidence and knowledge as a practitioner. The opportunity to reflect on, and study in depth, areas of education that are of most interest to me, has allowed me to develop a professional expertise that I might otherwise not have pursued in any detail.

Overview

Our MA Early Childhood Education is aimed at graduates (nationally and internationally) from a variety of backgrounds who wish to expand and deepen their knowledge of young children and their learning from birth to eight years.

Supported by a small team of academics, you will have the opportunity to research and develop specialist areas of expertise within the field. During the programme you will also be encouraged to reflect on the ways this learning supports your professional and career development.

Each year we are reminded of the transformational potential of education as our students move onto a PhD, are promoted, set up their own business, gain a new role or reignite their passion for an existing one. Come and join us to find out the difference it could make to you.

Your future career

The MA Early Childhood Education opens-up a wide range of career opportunities. Our graduates have been successful in pursuing careers in a variety of early childhood policy, practice and research contexts. On completion of your MA, you could undertake further study at CCCU by pursuing one of our research degrees (MPhil, EdD or PhD).
