Post-graduate Studies

The Department of Early Childhood Education (DECE) consistently supports post-graduate studies and research. It offers an MA course in Education, as well as opportunities for doctoral and post-doctoral research.
Since September 2018, the Department runs the programme Master of Arts (M.A.) in Education, “Educational Sciences: Creative Educational Environments and Playing”. This employs a multidisciplinary approach to the critical exploration of the pedagogical dimensions of play and creative learning, in a variety of educational environments. It is supported by teaching from the members of the Department and, additionally, by important guests from the academy and the arts.
The current MA in Education Programme continues, reforms and advances the constructive tradition of the previous M.A. programme, “Educational Sciences: Pedagogical Play and Educational Material in Early Childhood”, that had been run by the DECE successfully from 2005-06 to 2017-18.
