Event description

Description

The Equity Studies in Education MA, MEd program is designed for students who wish to study and develop expertise in an equity framework for education. The program conceptualizes education broadly as a concept that includes schooling, but also includes other social forces that shape knowledge in society.

From this perspective, equity in education refers to the range of interdisciplinary, theoretical perspectives from which the relationships between these forces are studied including:

  • critical social justice

  • anti-racism education

  • critical Indigenous education

  • critical race feminisms

  • critical literacies

  • queer/LGBT studies

  • human rights education

  • whiteness studies

  • globalization

  • postcolonial and neocolonial thought

Prospective candidates interested in this program may include:

  • Educators and administrators who wish to move into leadership roles with regards to equity practices in their schools and districts;

  • Advocates and educators who work in nonprofit agencies, such as the immigrant/settlement services sector, and other;

  • Advocates and educators working with adult learners in formal or informal learning settings;

  • Policy analysts working in government and non-government sectors;

  • Media workers interested in studying the informal education that occurs via media and popular culture;

  • Diversity and equity officers working in fields such as corrections, health, military, and law enforcement.

Program Format:

This program is designed to offer flexibility for students. Most classes will be held in the late afternoon/evenings at one of our three campuses, Burnaby, Vancouver, or Surrey.

The MEd degree route consists of 30 units of course work plus a comprehensive examination. The MA route consists of a minimum of 25 units of course work plus a thesis.
