The Master of Arts (Educational Management) programme is designed for individuals who hold management positions in the education service: principals, vice-principals, heads of department and teachers with positions of responsibility and MOE officers.
This programme pursues three broad aims: (i) to enable aspiring leaders in education to become more informed about critical issues in educational management, and thus to apply intellectual approaches to their work (ii) to help them cope positively and effectively with the management challenges that are currently impacting on education (iii) to enable them to acquire a recognised and valued postgraduate award. Topics covered include: organisational learning and development, human development and learning, assessment quality and standards, supervisory leadership and curriculum design, management of educational technology applications, finance and resource management, quantitative and qualitative research methods, comparative issues in education, contemporary issues in school marketing, mentoring for professional development and leadership succession, school and organisational effectiveness, globalisation, educational change and pedagogical reform.
There are two options within this programme. You are required to either:
- Complete 6 courses plus a dissertation (Dissertation option), or
- Complete 7 courses plus MEM932 Critical Inquiry (2 AU)
You do not have to make the decision when you apply. The decision on what option to select is usually made upon completion of four courses.
