The University of Newcastle’s master program will enable you to take on high-level roles within funded development projects, aid organisations and government departments.
It also opens up opportunities to take you outside of Australia to work in developing countries, which are supported through government departments.
There is a continuously growing need for qualified professionals to undertake roles in the community development and policy analysis of funded development projects and aid organisations.
At the completion of your Masters in Social Change and Development you will have the fundamental theoretical and practical knowledge to take on these roles within government agencies, non-government organisations and private firms.
This program will open up new opportunities and see you possess the potential to embark on some of the following career pathways:
- policy analyst
- community and social developer
- advocacy and public policy coordinators
- overseas aid officer
- ministry of finance in a developing country
You will graduate with the ability to apply your social change and development expertise in real-world settings and position yourself at the forefront of the industry.
