MA Religions and Education by distance learning

The subject of religion in education is internationally recognised as needing more specialist expertise at both primary and secondary levels. This flexible course is aimed at teachers of religious education and related subjects, and those working with young people in a faith or belief context.

You will have the opportunity to engage with the internationally recognised curriculum development work of the Warwick Religions and Education Research Unit, and with its qualitative and quantitative research in the field of religions and education. You’ll complete all of your learning online through a distance learning portal, using a mixture of online text extracts and journals, with email supervision from your subject tutor.

You’ll take four modules, usually over three years. These include a core module in Interpreting Religious World Views, plus other subject specific modules that can include Current Issues in Religious Education and Inter Faith Dialogue for Young People. You’ll then take an Introduction to Research Methods in RE module, and complete a dissertation under the supervision of a member of academic staff.
