Admission to Master's degree programmes in 2020/2021 (beginning: Autumn 2020)
Submission deadline until midnight 30 Apr 2020
Graduates of the Master’s degree study programme in pedagogy have a broad knowledge in the discipline, have mastered its principles and structure, and are aware of its links to other disciplines. They are equipped with theoretical knowledge as well as the practical skills needed in jobs in institutions providing formal and non-formal education. They possess knowledge and skills in planning, implementing, and evaluating educational research. They are also ready to undertake developmental, organizational, and project activities within the education system and in out-of-school education and, thanks to the high degree of professional flexibility acquired during the study, also at a number of positions in state administration. The widely applicable skills in working with specialized texts and advanced communication competences (including competences in experiential and reflective learning) can be used in a number of jobs as well as in lifelong learning. They include especially advanced writing skills (writing specialized texts, popular science texts and journalistic writing, including grant applications) and spoken (presentation) skills.
The internships are undertaken in the field (e.g. in departments of education of city and town magistrates, in educational agencies, consultancy firms, non-profit organizations, and educational research) and within the Expert Module course, taught by experts from the field. The course has been designed to prepare students for the internships but will also support the application level of the study. All internships are supplemented with reflection blocks co-managed by internship supervisors and experts in techniques of reflection from among the teaching staff at the Department of Educational Sciences, Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University.
Graduates of the Master’s degree study programme in pedagogy will be ready to take up pedagogical work involving people of all age categories (e.g. in departments of education of city and town magistrates, in educational agencies, consultancy firms, non-profit organizations, and educational research). Their knowledge of educational theories and theories of adjacent disciplines provides them with an ability to participate in planning, implementing and evaluating pedagogical and educational activities. To this end, they are equipped with knowledge, skills, and competences acquired through the study of theoretical and applied disciplines, emphasizing the broad foundation shared by theoretical pedagogy and human sciences on the one hand, and the marriage of theory and practice in pedagogy on the other. In addition, graduates possess advanced knowledge and skills in empirical research methodology across the range of fundamental research designs.
Students have a pre-defined list of required courses, which are supplemented with selective and elective courses. The student pays full attention to the single field of study chosen.
Single-subject studies with specialization
In the single-subject studies, the student deepens knowledge in the concrete focus of the degree programme and chooses one specialization. The specialization is stated in the university diploma.
In this type of studies, the students focus on the main degree programme (120 credits) supplemented with another, minor, programme (60 credits). The student enrols in the degree programme in which he/she majors. Both the programmes are stated in the university diploma.
