ABOUT

As a student, you will be introduced to significant ideas and theories in the history of educational theory as well as how these ideas influence contemporary education. By working dialectically and critically, you will develop your analytical and conceptual skills through lectures, readings, seminars, and workshops. Theoretical perspectives will be discussed in relation to concrete examples chosen by both teachers and students.

During the programme, you will critically explore the history and theories of different practices of schooling and educational technologies. At the same time, you will deepen your understanding of education in terms of complex processes of personal change and interpersonal influence. You will explore the relationships between education and political action and between educational autonomy and political dependency. You will also be given the opportunity to study different research methodologies relevant for educational theory, as well as the philosophy of science underpinning these methods.

Course structure

The first semester revolves around the question of what education is, investigating its intellectual history and different educational practices. The second semester is dedicated to understanding and challenging foundational ideas about what it is to become formed through education and the boundaries between education, formation, upbringing, and fostering. The focus of the third semester is on explicating and critically evaluating the contested relationship between education and politics. In addition to the above, the first three semesters will also allow you to study research methodology, including philosophy of science, research ethics and academic writing within the field of educational theory. During the fourth and final semester you will write a master’s thesis as well as participate in seminars discussing texts in progress.

International opportunities

During the non-compulsory courses, you will have the opportunity to study abroad at one of Malmö University’s 250 partner universities. You can also choose to work on your master’s thesis while abroad.

Your future career

After graduating, you will be prepared for PhD studies, leading to careers within education or research. The degree will also qualify you for work in national and international public and private organisations, in the field of education.

The focus during the programme is on training your theoretical and analytical abilities in order for you to better understand and critically reflect upon education, regardless of your future role within the education system.
