Applicationsfor the 2015/2016 Masters in Education (Environmental Education) are no more accepted. This programme is presented by the Environmental Learning Research Centre and the internationally recognized Murray & Roberts Chair of Environmental Education which are housed within the Rhodes University Faculty of Education.The main aim of the degree is to enable course participants to develop research capabilities, and a clear conceptual framework from which to understand and evaluate environmental education practice, social learning and Education for Sustainable Development; globally, regionally and in relation to a diversity of workplaces and learning contexts, from an informed and critical perspective.

The degree is designed for practising environmental education, training and development practitioners (including but not limited to teachers with various subject specialisms, lecturers and other adult educators, curriculum or resource developers, journalists, writers, researchers, conservationists, development workers, social learning facilitators) wishing to further their existing knowledge of, and insights in, Environmental Education, social learning and change.
This degree requires high levels of self-motivation and commitment and it is essential to have a considerable amount of time, beyond the formally scheduled sessions, for wide reading and self-study. Assignments are workbased and will require you to engage reflexively with theory and practice
in practice.
It is also important to be computer literate before taking this degree, and you must have access to computer facilities at home or in your workplace to complete the degree successfully.
