About the Organization
Azim Premji University is an Indian non-profit private university, located in Bengaluru, Karnataka. It was established by the Azim Premji University Act and recognised by the University Grants Commission under Section 2F.
About the Program
With 30 crore children, 15 lakh schools and 90 lakh teachers, India needs trained professionals in education.
We believe that education can and should contribute to human development and well-being. India has one of the largest education systems in the world and the education sector requires capable and competent practitioners who can work towards the improvement of the quality of education.
Today, there is a dire need for teacher educators, curriculum and textbook developers, school administrators, and researchers and policy implementers, who can help implement the reform initiatives of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020.
The Master of Arts in Education (MA Ed) programme at Azim Premji University aims to develop reflective educational practitioners who can reform the education system.
More than 1,000 MA Ed students have graduated so far from the University and are contributing to different areas of Education action and intervention in the country, leading Curriculum Design, Programme Management, Teacher Education, Curricular Material Development and more.
The programme also encourages students to become social entrepreneurs who are capable of innovative thinking and implementing path-breaking solutions. In addition to elective courses on social entrepreneurship, the University has also established a Social Enterprise Cell to assist students with innovative enterprise ideas. More than 30 of our alumni have established their own social enterprises.
Our flagship programme is designed to address a big gap in the education sector, and to train students to meet the large demands for professionals with skills for problem-solving and innovation.
Educational practice and work
While there are several teacher education institutions in the country, there are few that provide a view into the full spectrum of the work involved in educational practice, apart from teaching. Our programme is one such.
We believe that there is a need for professionals who can take on a variety of responsibilities, ranging from classroom teaching to policy formulation and implementation, to theoretical or conceptual analysis in education. Our programme of study includes theory, research, practice, research, policy and planning in education. Our vision is to cultivate social concern and motivation that can be a basis for action.
Our programme helps you forge connections with the larger context of education in India. You will be exposed to a diversity of educational practices, policies, settings and contexts in India. You will interact with learners, learning communities and school systems.
