The question of how education can promote greater equity in an increasingly diverse society is central to this MA. It provides the opportunity to engage at the forefront of theoretical perspectives and research in the field of inclusion, disability and SEN to deepen understanding of how you might shape, approach and develop practice for your own professional setting.  Students are encouraged to develop their own narrative in relation to the balance, and tensions, between inclusive practice in mainstream settings and more targeted provision or specialised areas of SEN, reflecting critically on your own experience and alternative perspectives. The award draws on the specialist expertise and research in the Faculty's Education and Social Research Institute.

This award is part of the Manchester Met Faculty of Education postgraduate Professional Development Programme.

Career options after the course

Many of our students progress to senior and/or specialist posts whilst undertaking, or on completion of their Masters. The award:

  • Demonstrates to employers a level of intellectual rigour, and the capacity for sustained and systematic engagement.
  • The course also brings the students' continued professional development into sharp focus - it offers channels to support your current priorities, targets and aspirations
  • Further, it encourages students to apply their new thinking in practice in systematic ways. As such, it creates opportunities for its participants to form creative and innovative modes of practice - and also the impetus for them to actually carry these forward. In this way, our students are able to build their reputations as systematic, evidence-driven innovators.
  • The MA Inclusive Education and SEND is also a good option for practitioners to develop more critical and theoretical insights about practice. If you are considering continuing with your studies on completion of your Masters by pursuing a research degree (MPhil, EdD or PhD) then you will find this MA a good foundation.
