Master's in Education for Global Futures | University of Oulu

Education for Global Futures is a full-time two-year master’s degree programme facilitating global dialogues in and about education, with the aim of critically re-imagining education based on social justice and decolonial thinking.

Top reasons to study Education for Global Futures

  • Engage in a truly transformative experience, working collaboratively in challenging and unlearning truths and beliefs we have taken for granted, re-imagining education together for more sustainable and peaceful futures.
  • Explore your passions and interests with similarly minded peers from all over the world, in our student-centred programme guided and supported by our diverse faculty team members.
  • Critically appraise education in a time of rapid change, by engaging in studies that are multidisciplinary and research-based.
  • Participate in academic dialogues and publications, and expand your network with our partners, other students, scholars and practitioners from North-South-East-West.
  • Transform into an adaptable, independent and flexible educational expert within our community, which promotes the concept of Critical, Open, Active, Caring and Humble (COACH).

Rethinking education and its policies

Since we are living in an ever changing and increasingly complex world - facing issues such as human rights violations, surge in AI applications, increasing migration, rise of disinformation and polarisation – simple, quick and easy solutions are not available.

Our EdGlo degree programme is engaging with such changes and challenges, by using a research-based approach to further develop and rethink education and policy in order to advance social justice, interculturalism, peace and inclusion.

Join us and enter an intercultural and student-centred study environment, where diversity is not only our reality but also an instrumental and crucial tool in learning about and for better global futures.

Students major in Educational Sciences

Within our programme, you will have the opportunity to study in a minor called Education in Transition. This minor is offered if you have not studied education in your previous degree, or if you are simply interested in deepening your knowledge about education. If you have studied education in your previous studies, there is a number of other minors you can choose as part of your degree.

You will have the opportunity to apply your newly gained knowledge in practice, during the internship included within our programme. This will not only strengthen the work-life relevance of your studies but also build your own professional development. You will have the opportunity to find an internship in Finland or internationally in a variety of settings, such as intergovernmental agencies, non-governmental organisations, or educational institutions.

Gain new expertise in our programme, building on new skills and knowledge transferable to your future careers. Upon graduation, you will be awarded a Master of Arts (Education) degree which enables you to continue your academic studies at doctoral level.

This degree, by itself does not provide students with a formal teaching qualification.
