SEN, DISABILITY AND INCLUSIVE EDUCATION AT UNIVERSITY OF ROEHAMPTON, LONDON


The SEN, Disability and Inclusive Education programme enables students to investigate the education of children and young people with learning difficulties, disability, disadvantage or other additional needs. Our programme is founded upon a democratic commitment to forms of education which challenge exclusion and enable the participation, learning, development and empowerment of all.

Students studying on the programme will engage with aspects of theory, policy and practice relevant to international and local contexts. With its international profile, this programme brings together those who have significant professional experience working with children and young people with learning difficulties, disabilities, disadvantages or other additional needs, either directly in teaching, support or project work, or as policy-makers, advisory workers or managers.

The MA SEN, Disability and Inclusive Education draws on different disciplinary traditions and approaches to theory and practice within the field of Inclusion, SEN and Disability, but is underpinned by rights-based, justice-based and equalities-based principles and a rejection of deficit-based approaches to difference (including the medical model of disability). The specialist modules within the programme include some which have particular emphasis and grounding in social or critical or psychological perspectives as well as other modules which are more generic in their foundation. The compulsory final independent enquiry module – a 60 credit Dissertation - allows the opportunity for a range of research styles and approaches for critically enquiring into an identified question or issue or for developing practice through critical enquiry.

Students greatly benefit from engaging with the insights, experiences and perspectives of other programme members, from a diverse range of contexts and backgrounds. The combination of their own experiences, insights gained from others on the programme and the theoretical resources offered by learning within the modules, enables students to deepen their understanding of, and to be able to challenge exclusion in education and the barriers that hinder participation, learning, development and empowerment of children and young people with learning difficulties, disability, disadvantage or other additional needs.

The teaching provided on modules is informed by active research and scholarship in the field of Inclusion, SEN and Disability theory and practice. All lecturers leading modules on the programme have high level specialist qualifications, teaching and leadership experience in the field of Education and Inclusion.
This programme can be taken full-time over one year (for those who are not working or working very little) or can be taken part-time over 2 – 4 years.
