Global Education and International Development - MA (Full-Time/Part-Time, 2019 Entry)

Education plays a variety of often contradictory roles in public debates, policy discourses, and academic research related to globalisation and international development.

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 clearcut regions that are designated as ‘developed’ and ‘developing’: local, regional and international connections demand that we re-focus attempts to understand and theorise the role of education in contemporary society.

This programme addresses interconnected challenges and issues in relation to education.
