Course summary

Do you aspire to critically engage with some of the most important questions of the current moment? Would you like to improve both your knowledge and your practical skills in the area of Global Education and International Development? Do you work in the education sector and hope to increase the global reach of your work? Perhaps you have an international development background and want to specialise in education issues? Whatever your goals are, enhance your knowledge and practical skills with this course. Course overview Education plays a variety of often contradictory roles in public debates, policy discourses, and academic research related to globalisation and international development. Education may be seen as the silver bullet, the solution to global inequalities and the vehicle for economic and social development. Alternatively, education is blamed for not delivering its promise, or even for reproducing or exacerbating the very problems it was supposed to solve. Education systems and institutions are themselves sites which are affected by patterns of globalisation and policy changes regarding development and aid. Increasingly we are moving into a ‘post-development’ era, where it is no longer possible to separate the globe into clear-cut regions that are designated as ‘developed’ and ‘developing’: local, regional and international connections and transitions demand that we re-focus attempts to understand and theorise the role of education in contemporary society. Education policy and practice faces the imperative of adapting to enhanced mobility and immobility, changing political regimes, and the ever-shifting relationship between education and social change. MA Global Education and International Development addresses a complex array of interconnected challenges and issues in relation to education, understood in its broadest sense. The programme brings together theoretical and conceptual challenges with applied considerations for education practitioners and development interventions. The MA includes an option to take a placement module which enhances your professional skills and employability. Please note that if you wish to study on a part time basis you should be aware that most core modules are taught during the normal working day and there is no out of hours provision.
