MA Participation, Power and Social Change Linking practice, theory and reflection

The Institute of Development Studies, Sussex University (UK), offers a unique 18-month Master's degree that gives development workers the opportunity to critically reflect on their practice and build knowledge and skills while continuing to work. The MA combines two terms of academic study with one year of work-based action research, in which students inquire into challenges related to participation, power relations and social change. Applicants should have 3-5 years of relevant experience working with communities, civil society, government, business or consultancy, and can pursue diverse areas of interest such as community development, governance, agriculture, health, human rights, livelihoods, natural resources, HIV, climate change, youth, gender, communication, planning, policy-making, and others. For further information please visit our website or contact Angela Dowman, Programme Administrator, Phone: +44 (0)1273 915644. (Thanks to Brad Olson for passing this on).
