MA/MSc by Research in Education

The Master’s Degree by Research allows you to examine one area of education in depth and is focused on producing a 40,000-word dissertation. This is an alternative route to gaining a Master’s level qualification, which appeals to students with a clear focus for their study.

The Centre for Education Studies (CES) is proud of the diversity and excellence of research undertaken in the centre. We have a wide range of disciplinary and methodological expertise in education research both qualitative and quantitative. We are committed to interdisciplinarity in education studies and welcome research students who wish to pursue multidisciplinary research by supporting joint supervision with other Warwick departments.

Areas for research supervision include:
Cultural and Creative Learning; Religions and Education; Childhood; Educational Leadership and Management; Higher Education; Life Sciences Education and Publics’ Understanding; Mathematics Education; Philosophy of Education; Public and Social Significance of Religion; and New Technologies for Teaching and Learning.
