MA in Practitioner Research: Improving
Professional Practice A Masters for the Education and the
Study on this course allows you the opportunity
to research aspects of your professional practice and to gain
accreditation at Masters Level. Through close scrutiny of your
work, practitioner research is a powerful form of continuing
professional development which develops knowledge about and
insights into practice.
What qualifications will I need?
Applicants for entry to the programme must
demonstrate that they have the qualifications, and/or experience
which will allow them to succeed on this programme of study.
Applicants must have access to a workplace or voluntary setting (in
which practitioner enquiry can take place) and
possess at least one of the following:
- An honours degree in an appropriate discipline
or its equivalent from York St John University or any other
approved university or institution of higher education
- An equivalent qualification acceptable to York
St John University
- Appropriate Accreditation of Prior
(Experiential) Learning (APL/APEL) qualifications/experience.
As the MA is for practitioners
from different professional fields, an honours degree from across a
range of disciplines will be considered appropriate in terms of
suitability for entry to the programme. This will be particularly
so where the applicant has engaged in qualitative research as part
of their first degree studies. A first degree in Education or the
Social Sciences provides a good foundation but degrees in other
disciplines will also be considered.
