The programme is based on the strengths in research of the Faculty of Education: learning research, learning environments and research of educational systems. The degree studies will both enhance the students’ understanding of social functions of education and familiarise them with analyses on global and local relationships in educational policy. In addition, the programme increases their understanding of learning and motivation in complex and multilevel learning environments. Throughout the studies, a strong emphasis is placed on students’ research skills.
Career or after graduation opportunities
After completing the Master of Arts degree in education, students may pursue postgraduate studies for the Doctor of Philosophy at the University of Turku.
Applicants for the LLEES programme can opt for the Finnish-German Master Programme in Education (double degree option), which leads to two degrees: Master of Arts in Education from the University of Turku, and Master of Arts Erziehungswissenschaft (Educational Science) from the University of Regensburg, Germany. The double degree option is a perfect opportunity to broaden your academic network, and experience the academic worlds of both Finland and Germany. Students will receive invaluable academic support and input from both universities for their studies.
