The programme provides students with the opportunity to follow a course of study unique in the UK, looking at a range of current issues and debates, including discussions about girls’ access to and achievements in school; femininities, masculinities and gender relations within education; post-colonial perspectives and the ways in which the state and society shapes the politics of gender and education; and approaches to social justice and education.
Graduates of this Education, Gender and International Development programme offered at the University College London (UCL) are currently working across a broad range of areas. Some are working as specialist professionals in NGOs and international development organisations, while others have jobs as teachers and education managers. Graduates can also be found working as government officials, civil servants and university lecturers worldwide.
It is intended that students who have participated fully in the programme will be able to:
- reflect critically on debates concerning education, gender and international development
- understand the ways in which knowledge forms, and is formed by, education politics, policy, practice and research in national settings in low- and middle-income countries, and in transnational organisations
- consider the implications of theory, research and analyses developed through class discussions for their own future practice and professional development
- use oral and written communication skills in order to make arguments, examine evidence and creatively advance this area of inquiry
- understand processes entailed in research and conduct a small research study.
