Master of Arts Education and Society

Teacher helping two students

The M.A. in Education and Society offers students the opportunity to explore educational issues within various societal contexts, encompassing cultural, historical, philosophical, economic, and political factors. This program provides two primary pathways: 1) Culture, Values, and Education, which delves into areas like philosophy, art, gender, and international education, and 2) Teaching, Learning, and Curriculum, which focuses on contemporary pedagogical perspectives and classroom practice. Drawing from diverse theoretical frameworks such as philosophy, sociology, and cultural studies, this M.A. program encourages critical inquiry into education's multifaceted nature. Students may choose from three program options, as outlined below:
