Explore the ways that education can contribute to the development process, both theoretically and empirically. You’ll look at a variety of perspectives, including human rights, social and human development, and human capital.
This MA in Education and Development from the University of East Anglia will enable you to understand current debates, and their implications for national and international education strategies. In doing so, it locates educational debates within a wider development perspective.
Topics in the core modules include current challenges of education and development, including linguistic and cultural diversity, the education of nomads and other migratory groups, and responses to conflict, HIV/Aids and child labour.
You will also examine international and national policies and practices, with the aim of developing the capacity to contribute to appropriate policy design for educational development.
A career in international development can take you in all kinds of directions such as international organisations, governmental and non-governmental organisations, local governments, private sector and PhD programmes.
Our previous graduates have gone on to work for the British High Commission in Ghana, UNITAR in Japan, the Swiss Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, and PhD studies in related fields.
