Course description

The MSc in Deaf Education gives you the opportunity to develop research skills within this area of expertise and also provides training for qualified teachers who want to work within deaf education. It delivers an evidence-based approach to meeting the diverse needs of deaf children.

The course places a strong emphasis on translation of theory to practice. The rapid developments in audiology, and our understanding of language, communication and educational practice, make this an exciting area of study. The course has DfES/TDA approval, which meets the requirements of the mandatory qualification.

If you already hold the PGDip in Deaf Education, an additional module is available to allow you to gain an MSc, including Research Methods and a Dissertation.

Open days

All students are welcome to visit either individually or in groups. Please contact the course administrator to arrange a visit.
