In education, upbringing and youth care there are a number of different interests to consider. These interests, of the children, their parents, the groups to which they belong (e.g. religious or ethnic minorities), and the interests of society are often difficult to define and they can often be at odds with each other.

Educational professionals need to have the competences to analyse and discuss moral, legal and policy-related issues. Some of them need to be extra-proficient in this area in order to be able to advise other professionals, managers, policy makers, politicians, and governments. The Ethics of Education Master's course provides the right learning environment to enable you to develop this extra expertise. You will acquire the relevant competences and learn to apply these in the professional contexts of research, policy making and consultancy.

From September onwards, most of our courses will be offered online. Where possible and necessary we will combine the online education with lectures and activities on campus, since we feel it is important that you can meet your lecturers and fellow students in person.

In the Master track Ethics of Education you learn to analyse moral issues and discussions in order to design policies and procedures and to take decisions. Three examples:

Homosexuality and education
Circumcision
Rather be Deaf

Job prospects

The master track will prepare you for jobs at institutions and media in the field of education, training, child care and child and youth welfare work. Two domains of jobs can be distinguished: Teaching & Training and Policy and Consultancy. Teaching & Training includes for example teaching at schools for higher professional education (HBO), but also schooling and training at institutions and companies. Policy & Consultancy includes consultative jobs, policy making and communication and the theoretical underpinning and support of educational responsibilities both from private and governmental organizations.

Of course, the master track also prepares you to do academic research. You will be trained in academic reading, designing research, assessing scientific publications and academic writing.

Students will be familiarized with the educational field, career options and career perspectives. They will practice professional skills, such as writing consultancy reports and policy decisions, teaching and training. The internship and the course Professional Skills are important parts of the master track.
