Build your research skills while improving your professional practice

The Master of Education will update your professional knowledge and qualifications, while exploring new developments and changes in education.

What is it like?

Stay up to date with the latest education knowledge

Massey uses an enquiry-based and inter-professional learning model that results in best-practice learning and teaching experiences which can immediately be applied in your own setting. Our Master of Education offers the largest number of endorsements of any postgraduate degree of its kind in New Zealand. Alternatively you may want to follow an unendorsed pathway where you can choose from any of the courses in the endorsement areas or the elective schedule.

Flexible study to suit you

You’ll benefit from a range of distance and blended-learning delivery options that provide flexible learning opportunities regardless of your location.

Learn from highly qualified, well-regarded teachers who are supportive and provide a high level of pastoral care. We use a variety of technologies to personalise your experience and provide an anywhere, anytime learning environment.

Advance through your studies

The Master of Education is now offered as a 180-credit degree, which means you can complete it in as little as 1.5 years of full time study.

Join us in promoting the scholarship of teaching and learning. 

Massey is ranked in the world’s top 150 universities for education in the Quacquarelli Symonds (QS) ranking.

Your qualification options

Please note that the Master of Education does not qualify you to be a teacher in New Zealand. If you want to be a teacher, you will also need to take a postgraduate teaching qualification. Please explore your options in our education pathways tool.

A good fit if you:

  • Have a degree and some professional experience in the subject you would like to explore
  • Want to engage at the cutting edge of an education debate
  • Have an education topic that you would like to explore through research

Careers

You will enhance and advance your career, depending on your specialisation, in areas such as:

  • Education settings (early childhood to tertiary levels)
  • TESOL settings
  • Kaiwhakaako Maori
  • Special education
  • Professional training and development roles within organisations (eg, teaching hospitals, businesses, community organisations, libraries)
  • Leadership roles in centres/schools and post-school settings
  • Learning and instructional design
  • Research and policy development

Lecturer profile

Professor Glenda Anthony

“Taking research ideas and making them accessible to the audiences who might use them is a key responsibility of my job. I hope my love of teaching mathematics and belief that all of us can experience at least a little of the wonder of mathematics shines through.

As a member of our Centre for Research in Mathematics Education (CeRME), you will have access to a range of mathematics educators and their research interests. CeRME brings together experts in mathematics education to work on a common theme: the place of mathematics education and its transformative potential in New Zealand, the Pacific region and the world.

The challenge is to support teacher learning so that teachers’ classroom practices improve in ways that are productive for all students’ learning. “

Glenda teaches on the courses 276.782 Mathematics Education and 276.785 Making Mathematics Accessible.
