In this MA programme, students explore political and philosophical debates that have influenced and shaped learning and teaching in Citizenship, History and Religious Education. Students focus on their subject specialism, and are encouraged and enabled to critically reflect on principles and issues that relate to policy and professional practice.

Students explore the key concepts involved in understanding their subject specialism, of Citizenship, History or Religious Education. They will develop an understanding of contemporary issues and key research findings associated with their subject specialism and related areas, and be supported to apply this knowledge in practice and in wider school life.

Students undertake modules to the value of 180 credits.

The programme consists of two core modules (60 credits), and either two optional modules (60 credits) and a dissertation (60 credits), or three optional modules (90 credits) and a report (30 credits).
