Minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent). Relevant work experience may also be considered.
Months of entry
Applicants apply for the MSc Violence, Conflict and Development
programme but can decide to follow the Palestine Pathway upon arrival by choosing the combination of modules required for this pathway (see Structure tab).
We welcome applications from those who have worked in a broad field of development and/or conflict, but also from students without relevant work experience who can demonstrate a strong interest in, and understanding of, development issues in Palestine.
Students taking the Palestine Studies Pathway will develop a specialist understanding of Development Studies in the context of Palestine. Development and conflict issues in Palestine are a major focus of NGO and international organisations that work in the Middle East. SOAS' recognised strengths in this area, including the establishment of the Centre for Palestine Studies
, makes this a unique and exciting opportunity for those interested in Palestine.
