MA Special Needs and Inclusion

Year of entry

The MA Special Needs and Inclusion is a distinct, multi-professional award designed for international and UK students. This course meets the growing need for professionals to have the skills and theoretical understanding necessary to work in different fields and across the life span.

Underpinned by a strong values base, it emphasises social justice and inclusive principles, whilst acknowledging and critiquing the many different perspectives in policy and practice.

Full-time students will study three 20 credit modules each term, with sessions taught either during the day, twilight or occasionally at weekends.

Part-time students’ sessions will take place during the evening and on one Saturday each term.

All students are encouraged and supported to work collaboratively and to explore their individual interests. Blended learning materials are available to support all students.

To achieve the MA Special Needs and Inclusion award you'll need to complete 3 core (compulsory) modules and 3 optional modules, plus a dissertation.

Some of the modules you could study:

Critical Issues (Core)

Following the successful completion of the 3 core modules and 3 other modules you'll carry on to complete a Dissertation. This is your own particular research into a topic of interest to you, identified in conjunction with your tutor.
