Course content

This degree explores ways that education can contribute to the development process, both theoretically and empirically, from a variety of perspectives – including human rights, social and human development, and human capital.

The course enables students to understand current debates, and their implications for national and international education strategies. In doing so it locates educational debates within a wider development perspective.

Topics in the core modules include current challenges of education and development, including linguistic and cultural diversity, the education of nomads and other migratory groups, and responses to conflict, HIV/Aids and child-labour. The programme also examines international and national policies and practices, with the aim of providing students with the capacity to contribute to appropriate policy design for educational development.
