This Master’s programme is a blended programme, consisting of online learning and two physical gatherings (face-to-face sessions). Students who need to apply for a visa to come to Norway can choose to apply for a short-term visa for the face-to-face session in August, or can apply for a student visa and stay on campus during the two years.
Cooperation is a fundamental idea for the programme. The pedagogy is learner focused, and will include group work, discussions and joint assignments. The online tuition, instruction and supervision takes place in virtual classrooms. The programme is full time, and we expect all students to participate actively, take responsibility for their own learning and take part in the development of an optimal learning environment.
The majority of the students who have graduated from the Global Development and Planning programme are now working within research and teaching, in NGOs (in Norway or abroad), with Corporate Social Responsibility in the private sector, in public administration, with refugees and immigrants, in the UN system etc. The master programme may qualify for admittance to relevant doctoral programmes.
