Our MA in International Development programme is designed to prepare participants for work in development in a community, local government, youth/adult education, or NGO setting. The programme offers learners an opportunity to explore contemporary theories of social change and development and to analyse development policies and practices. The programme is available full-time, part-time and online (through Flexible Distance Learning), and can be taken to either Post-graduate Diploma or MA level.
Learners can specialise within the programme by choosing from a number of elective areas that are most suited to their area of interest. These ‘specialist pathways’ include ‘Globalisation and Change’; ‘People Centred Development’ and ‘Development and Management’. Participants successfully completing the programme will be awarded an internationally recognised MA in International Development, validated by Maynooth University.
