Community and Youth Work
Applicants should normally hold an upper 2nd Class Honours degree or equivalent. At least 1 year's full-time practice experience in community and youth work or a related field (or part-time equivalent) is also required. We will take into account applicant's individual circumstances in determining this, and are happy to consider both paid and voluntary experience in determining whether this requirement is met. As guidance, please can applicants provide 1 academic reference and 1 reference which relates to their practice experience when applying. Applicants with substantial professional experience may be admitted by concession without an upper 2nd Class Honours degree, providing that they have demonstrated an ability to undertake Master's level work. All applicants for this programme have to pass an informal interview, which can be conducted either in person in Durham or via telephone/webcam. This will also give applicants an opportunity to find out more about the programme from a member of the teaching team and have any questions answered. Admission is subject to satisfactory Disclosure and Barring Service Enhanced Disclosure check being undertaken upon an offer of a place being made, to assess whether applicants have any previous convictions that prevent them from working with vulnerable people.
The programme consists of 4 taught modules, a dissertation module (research in community and youth work) and 2 periods of assessed fieldwork practice. Core modules: Community policy and practice; youth policy and practice; professional and personal development; management in community settings; research in community and youth work; fieldwork practice development 1; fieldwork practice development 2.
Assessment methods include dissertation.
