This MSc takes a critical look at ideas about social development, such as human rights, the capability approach and peace building, and their implications for education policy and practice. There will be opportunities to explore how educational theories and practice travel between and are adapted to specific contexts. Students will analyse the role of key organisations involved in the global governance of education, including civil society, international non-governmental organisations, development agencies and commercial bodies. The Policy and International Development pathway develops students’ skills in using international and comparative research, both in education and in analysing education policy. Students will be supported to develop their own reasoned position and distinctive critical voice for commenting on education policy and education’s role within social development at international, national and local level. Students will have access to first-class library and information services, allowing them to study the specific ideas, issues, initiatives and policies they are interested in.
