UCL (University College London)
Education, Gender and International Development
The programme will develop a student's understanding of the gender dimensions of research, analysis, policy and practice in relation to education in low- and middle-income countries. It will encourage them to consider how developing countries connect with more affluent and powerful regions of the world. Teaching is delivered by lectures or other structured inputs by staff; participant-led presentations and discussions based on selected readings or a clearly specified project; tutor-led seminars; workshops; problem/issue-based paired and small group work; occasional debates and occasional invited speakers; reflections on film and video inputs.
Applicants should normally hold a minimum of a 2nd Class UK Honours degree and demonstrate commitment and genuine interest in issues relating to gender, education and international development. They will normally have a minimum of 6 months' experience living/working in a low/middle-income context./country. Applicants who do not meet these criteria may sometimes be considered on the basis of an excellent personal statement. Applicants are encouraged to make informal contact with the programme leader to discuss expectations and other matters of detail.
Core modules: Education and international development (concepts, theories and issues); gender, education and development. Options: Students select either 2 or 3 Master's-level optional modules, chosen in consultation with the programme leader, from the UCL Institute of Education offering. Students are encouraged to take the module: Gender, sexuality and education, to increase their understanding of the literature on gender and education.
Assessment is via various forms of coursework including discursive essays, critical analysis of empirical research, reviews of literature, and the dissertation or report.
